General Information on Parnate
Parnate is used for the treatment of depression and other mental/mood disorders. It can prove helpful to prevent suicidal attempts/thoughts in those suffering from depression.
Tranylcypromine Sulfate, the main active ingredient in the medication, belongs to a group of medicines known as monoamine-oxidase inhibitors. It works by increasing concentrations of specific brain chemicals such as Serotonin, Norepinephrine, and Epinephrine.
Parnate is available in the form of a tablet. It is a powerful drug with a potential of causing severe side effects. Therefore, you should not buy Parnate without consulting your doctor.
Side effects of Parnate
Parnate may cause mild to severe side effects in some people. Restlessness, drowsiness or weakness, decreased urination, impotence, chills, nausea, loss of appetite, tingling or numbness, blurred vision, difficulty having an orgasm, ringing in the ears, stomach pain, constipation, or diarrhea are some less serious side effects associated with the drug.
Parnate may also cause severe side effects such as vision problems, tight feeling in your throat or chest, frequent headaches, sensitivity to light, pale skin, unusual weakness, easy bleeding or bruising, nausea, dizziness, tremors, and fast or pounding heartbeat.
Some people may also experience severe side effects such as involuntary muscle twitching, lack of co-ordination, swelling of the feet or ankles, sweating, feeling light headed, or vomiting. Stop using the medication and seek medical attention immediately if you notice severe side effects after taking a dose of Parnate
Parnate may also cause severe allergic reactions in some people. Rashes, swelling/itching of the throat, face/tongue, trouble breathing, and dizziness are some allergic reactions that should be reported to the doctor immediately.
It is not necessary that every person using this medication may experience some side effect. You need to understand that your doctor has prescribed Parnate for your treatment because he/she thinks that the benefits provided by the drug are far greater than its potential to produce side effects.
Dosage of Parnate
Your doctor will give you specific instructions regarding the dosage. The Parnate dosage depends on the medical condition of the patient and his/her response to therapy. A doctor generally starts the treatment with a low dose to avoid the risk of side effects. The dosage may be increased gradually during the treatment.
Doctors generally recommend a daily dose of 20mg to adults, which is one Parnate 10mg tablet in the morning and one Parnate 10mg tablet in the evening. The dosage is increased after two weeks if there is no therapeutic response.
Take the Parnate tablet with a glass of water. The effective dose in most cases is 30mg a day. You need to take the medication in divided doses. You can take Parnate with or without food. The maximum daily dose should not exceed 60 milligrams a day. Do not take Parnate in larger doses than recommended by your doctor.
If you are taking other drugs, then there is a possibility that Parnate may interact with them and cause side effects. Inform your doctor about every medicine you are using before you buy Parnate, including prescription medications, over the counter drugs, and herbal supplements. Parnate and all MAO inhibitors can cause very serious health problems if they are combined with certain other medications. Be sure to consult your doctor before taking any other medicine with Parnate, including over the counter medicines.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
