Medications - Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)

Why should someone taking MAOIs wear a MedicAlert medical ID ?

MAOIs are used to treat mental health conditions (e.g. clinical depression). The danger in taking MAOIs is their interaction with a wide variety of foods and other medications, including common over the counter drugs. When an adverse reaction occurs, it can result in hypertensive crises. MAOIs engraved on your custom MedicAlert bracelet ID will alert paramedics and doctors to call the MedicAlert 24-hour Emergency Hotline immediately for more information. Knowing your full medical history is critically important. Sign Up
