Tryptophan in L-tryptophan may interact with TRANYLCYPROMINE SULFATE in Tranylcypromine
Currently, tryptophan is not recommended for use as a dietary supplement. In addition, both tryptophan and tranylcypromine block the effects of an enzyme known as monoamine oxidase (MAO). Blocking some MAO may help to relieve depression for some individuals; but blocking too much may result in side effects such as confusion, eye twitches, shivering, and muscle incoordination. Rarely, a hypertensive crisis (a potentially dangerous rapid increase in blood pressure) has resulted from the combination of tryptophan and tranylcypromine. Tryptophan should not be taken - especially while tranylcypromine is being used or within a month after tranylcypromine has been discontinued. Discuss this potential interaction with your healthcare provider at your next appointment, or sooner if you think you are having problems.

This interaction is well-documented and is considered moderate in severity.
