Depression Home > Parnate Side Effects
Loss of appetite, dry mouth, and nausea are some of the side effects that have been reported with Parnate. Side effects are generally minor and, in most cases, don't require immediate medical attention, but certain problems should be reported to your healthcare provider right away. Serious side effects of Parnate that should be reported immediately include high or low blood pressure, hallucinations, and panic attacks.
As with any medicine, there are possible side effects with Parnate® (tranylcypromine sulfate). However, not everyone who takes the medication will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate the drug well. When people do develop Parnate side effects, in many cases they are minor, meaning they either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Parnate. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Parnate side effects with you.)
Parnate has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials in which a group of people taking the drug have side effects documented and compared to another group not taking the medicine. This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.
In these studies, some of the side effects of Parnate include:
- Insomnia (Parnate and Insomnia)
- Dry mouth (see Parnate and Dry Mouth)
- Abdominal pain (or stomach pain)
- Loss of appetite
- Blurred vision
- Problems ejaculating
- Impotence, also known as erectile dysfunction or ED (see Parnate Sexual Side Effects)
- Hair loss
- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
- Shakiness (tremors)
- Difficulty passing urine.
Withdrawal side effects have been reported in people who have stopped taking Parnate suddenly. These side effects of Parnate withdrawal include restlessness, anxiety, depression, and other problems (see Parnate Withdrawal).
