General Information On Marplan
Marplan is a non-selective hydrazine MAO-I (that is monoamine oxidase inhibitor), which is an anti-depressant agent. The drug is used in the treatment of depression. It is also effective in patients with suicidal tendencies. It is a choice of drug especially for those patients who have been recently (or newly) diagnoses with depression. The drug is meant for a short-term treatment of depression which may be for a period of 6 weeks. It is effective in those patients who have not responded to other anti-depressant agents. The brand or generic Marplan acts by irreversibly inhibiting the action of MAO in the central nervous system. This inhibition increases the concentration of neurotransmitters called MAO-A and MAO-B. The excess availability of these monoamines leads to the anti-depressant activities.
