ABSTRACT
Twenty patients with angina, pectoris of varying degrees of severity were treated with phenelzine for a period of 3 months. The dosage of phenelzine in all cases was 15 mg three times daily. Six of the 20 patients experienced complete remission of symptoms, in another 11 patients, the frequency of anginal attacks was decreased by at least 80 per cent, and in 1 patient by 50 per cent. No untoward side reactions were encountered. The mechanism of pain relief following phenelzine therapy was investigated in these patients as well as in a group of patients with a variety of other pain producing diseases. Results would indicate that the mode of pain relief in angina pectoris is of cardiac origin and is not related solely to an antidepressant effect.
