Side Effects of Tranylcypromine

Possible side effects of tranylcypromine include insomnia, chills, nausea, and loss of appetite. While most side effects are minor and do not require medical attention, there are also a number of less common, but more serious tranylcypromine side effects that you should report to your healthcare provider right away, such as dangerously high blood pressure, anxiety or panic attacks, and suicidal thoughts or behavior.
