The proper name for the TCP drug is tranylcypromine. It is a non-hydrazine monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI). TCP is sold under the brand name Parnate® and is used as an antidepressant. This drug is indicated for the treatment in case of severe depressive episodes (those without melancholia). Nowadays the chief usage for Tranylcypromine is in treating treatment-resistant depression as well as anergic atypical depression. This drug, however, also has a few off-label uses. The drug TCP can also be found under the category of Hallucinogens. The analogs of the drug phencyclidine (PCP) like PCPy, PCE, TCP cause illusions, impaired perception and hallucinations.

As it is a powerful drug with a number of contradictions, dietary restrictions and chances of overdose, it should be taken under medical supervision. For example, it is usually not recommended as an anti-depressant drug if a patient has low BMI or those with cardiovascular disease. The symptoms of TCP overdose are by and large more intense manifestations of the drugs effects and side-effects.
