What Is Phenelzine Used For?

Is Phenelzine Used for Children and Teens?

Phenelzine is not recommended for use in people under 18 years old, as it has not been thoroughly studied in children or teens. Antidepressants have been shown to increase the risk of suicidal thinking and behavior in short-term research studies involving children and teenagers (see Nardil and Suicide). Talk to your healthcare provider about treatment options for childhood or teen depression.
 

Is Phenelzine Used for Off-Label Purposes?

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend phenelzine for treating something other than depression. This is called an "off-label" use. Phenelzine is sometimes used in an off-label fashion to treat selective mutism (a childhood disorder involving the inability to speak in certain situations).
