Never use this combination of drugs, because of high risk for dangerous interaction (e.g. acute hypertension and adjunctive effect of the medication). Hope it help.

Per Drugs.Com drug interaction checker: "Using levodopa together with phenelzine is not recommended. Combining these medications may lead to dangerous increases in your blood pressure, a condition known as hypertensive crisis." Please discuss this with your physician.
