ABSTRACT
1. A total of 26 patients with anginal syndrome were treated with Nardil for the relief of pain. 2. Twenty-one patients showed good or excellent response to the daily oral dose of 45 mg. 3. Side effects presented a minor problem in only 1 patient. There appears to be a relation between larger doses and incidence of side effects; daily dosage should not exceed 45 mg. 4. Although the mode of action is presently unknown, the monoamine oxidase inhibitors in general, and Nardil in particular, produce lasting relief from pain in the patient with angina pectoris.
