MAOI’s

Posted on December 4th, by Megan in Uncategorized. No Comments

Monamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOI’s)  are antidepressant drugs and work great for treating patients. However, they have many side effects and the food list is limited when on the drug.

The three major MAOI’s are:

1. Parnate

2. Nardil

3. Marplan

I think of “Panama” to help remember. Take the two first letters of each drug.

The DO NOT eat food list

Avacado, soybeans, figs, cheese, wine, bananas, raisins, sauerkraut

Most commonly seen side effects: Dry mouth, nausea, insomnia, dizziness, headache.
