Allergy meds + Nardil BennyJ

Posted by ed_uk on January 7, 2006, at 15:25:33

In reply to any alergy meds ok with nardil?, posted by BennyJ on January 7, 2006, at 14:32:56

>Do you of any alergy meds you can combine with nardil?

There is a lot of clinical mythology surrounding the interactions of MAOIs.

Nardil does not interact with topical steroids eg. steroid nasal sprays. It does not interact with sodium cromoglicate eye drops (for allergic conjunctivitis). It does not interact with any of the commonly used non-sedating antihistamines eg. cetirizine, levocetirizine, loratadine, desloratadine, fexofenadine etc.

Although diphenhydramine is often said to be contraindicated with MAOIs, there is little or no evidence of an interaction. Increased sedation and anticholinergic side effects may allegedly occur.

Decongestants (including decongestant nasal sprays, nasal drops and eye drops) must *not* be combined with Nardil. Common decongestants include ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, phenylpropanolamine, phenylephrine, propylhexedrine, oxymetazoline, naphazoline, tramazoline and xylometazoline. There are many more. Decongestants are present in a lot of the popular 'eye bright' drops.

Dextromethorphan (present in some cough/cold/flu medicines) must not be combined with Nardil.

THOROUGHLY check ALL ingredients of ANY medicines taken. Medicines include tablets, capsules, creams, ointments, gels, nasal sprays, nose drops, eye drops, inhalers, liquids/syrups, suppositories, pessaries, injections etc.
