When and How to Take Tranylcypromine

Some considerations for when and how to take tranylcypromine include:
  • Tranylcypromine comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth, usually two or three times a day.
  • It does not matter if you take tranylcypromine with or without food. If it upsets your stomach, try taking it with food.
  • Tranylcypromine should be taken at the same times each day to maintain an even level of the medication in your blood.
  • For the medication to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. Tranylcypromine will not work if you stop taking it.

Tranylcypromine Dosage

The dose of tranylcypromine that your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
  • Your age
  • Other medical conditions you have
  • Other medications you are currently taking.
As with any medication, do not adjust your tranylcypromine dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
