Can I take Aceon if I'm on an MAOI?

You should be monitored carefully if you take both the blood pressure medication Aceon (perindopril) and an antidepressant that's a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI). The combination of these medications can cause your blood pressure to drop too low. MAOIs include tranylcypromine (Parnate), phenelzine (Nardil), selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam) and isocarboxazid (Marplan). If you're taking any of these drugs while also on Aceon, let your doctor know if you feel faint or if you experience changes in your heart rate or blood pressure.
