Target Audience:  This activity has been developed for psychiatrists specializing in psychopharmacology. There are no prerequisites. All other health care providers who are interested in psychopharmacology are welcome for advanced study, especially primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, psychologists, and pharmacists.

Overview: Despite the fact that MAO inhibitors (MAOIs) can be highly effective therapeutic agents for depression and some anxiety disorders, they tend to be underutilized in clinical practice. Because these drugs are no longer emphasized in medical education, there is a great deal of misinformation and mythology about their dietary and drug interactions. This book is intended to serve as a guide for clinicians who are not particularly familiar with MAO inhibitors; its aim is to help these clinicians competently integrate these agents into clinical practice when appropriate.

Learning Objectives: After completing this educational activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Identify foods that can or cannot be consumed by patients on different types of MAO inhibitors
  • Identify medications that can or cannot be taken by patients on different types of MAO inhibitors
  • Implement safe management strategies when switching between MAO inhibitors and serotonin reuptake inhibitors
  • Integrate MAO inhibitors into clinical practice according to best practices standards
