[IP] AE Inhibitors MAO's

An ace inhibitor inhibits the action of Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE)
which stops the formation of angiotensin a substance that raises the blood
pressure and stresses the kidneys. An MAO inhibitor inhibits the enzyme
Monoamine Oxidase which destroys norepinephrine. These are used to treat
depression and some are used for Parkinson's Disease. Common examples are:
Nardil, Eldeprel and Parnate. Usually the pharmacy puts all kinds of labels
and gives you stuff to read about MAO inhibitors if you have such a
prescription. To confuse things more there are MAO B inhibitors and A
inhibitors. B inhibitors usually do not cause problems with other drugs,
red wine or ripe cheeses. Eldeprel is an MAO B inhibitor.
