How does parnate (tranylcypromine) cause emotional blunting/numbness?

Antidepressants : patients being treated with antidepressants in general may complain of blunting of feelings. usually the physician decreases the dosage a little and most of the time it improves.
some blunting of feelings is not medication induced and can be a sign of depression. this may require an increase rather than a decrease of medications.
good luck and feel better
