Antipyrine elimination by patients under treatment with monoamine oxidase inhibitors.


1 Antipyrine elimination kinetics have been determined in fifteen patients before and after 4 weeks treatment with monoamine oxidase inhibitors and in five patients after treatment only. 2 Antipyrine elimination was slightly but significantly slowed by 28 days treatment with phenelzine but the degree of slowing was uninfluenced by acetylator phenotype or dosage of phenelzine administered. 3 The findings suggest that at the dosage used phenelzine is a weak inhibitor of hepatic microsomal mixed function oxidase in man and it is concluded that this is likely to provide an important source of drug interaction in some patients.
