Can I use MS Contin if I am taking tranylcypromine?

Do not use the painkiller MS Contin (morphine) if you're taking the antidepressant tranylcypromine (Parnate) or have taken it (or any other monoamine oxidase inhibitor) in the last 14 days. Tranylcypromine can significantly increase MS Contin's potency and lead to serious overdose symptoms such as slow or shallow breathing, low blood pressure, seizure, shock, coma and even death. Before starting MS Contin, it's critical that you let your doctor know if you've taken tranylcypromine.
