In this article, we will discuss Phenelzine (Clinical Pharmacology). So, let’s get started.
Phenelzine sulfate is a potent inhibitor of monoamine oxidase (MAO).
Phenelzine sulfate is a hydrazine derivative.
Monoamine oxidase is a complex enzyme system, widely distributed throughout the
body. Drugs that inhibit monoamine oxidase in the laboratory are associated with a
number of clinical effects. Thus, it is unknown whether MAO inhibition per se, other pharmacologic actions, or an interaction of both is responsible for the clinical effects observed. Therefore, the physician should become familiar with all the effects produced by drugs of this class.
