When can I stop taking Parnate?

Do not stop taking the antidepressant Parnate (tranylcypromine) without talking to your doctor about it. Sudden withdrawal from Parnate can cause severe symptoms. Although some people are prescribed Parnate for a short time, people with deep or recurring depression may take Parnate for months or longer, even after they start to feel better. When it's time to stop taking Parnate, your doctor will probably lower your dose slowly, over a period of several weeks.
