PHENELZINE Sulfate Tablets (GREENSTONE LLC) Dosage and Administration

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Initial dose

The usual starting dose of phenelzine sulfate is one tablet (15 mg) three times a day.

Early phase treatment

Dosage should be increased to at least 60 mg per day at a fairly rapid pace consistent with patient tolerance. It may be necessary to increase dosage up to 90 mg per day to obtain sufficient MAO inhibition. Many patients do not show a clinical response until treatment at 60 mg has been continued for at least 4 weeks.

Maintenance dose

After maximum benefit from phenelzine sulfate is achieved, dosage should be reduced slowly over several weeks. Maintenance dose may be as low as one tablet, 15 mg, a day or every other day, and should be continued for as long as is required.
