    • D. A and B

    Phenelzine can be fatal when administered with certain food types and drugs.  The nursing practitioners must ensure that the client is warned not to take foods that have a high content of Tyramine.

    Wine, cheese, bananas, avocado pear, air-dried meats, and many other foods contain this constituent. Taking phenelzine with these foods can be fatal.

    Phenelzine should also not be taken along with foods and drugs that contain Citalopram. These can also cause severe side effects and even death.

    At least a space of two weeks should be given to flush out these contents from the body system before beginning a medication with Phenelzine.

    MAOIs should never be taken as an adjunctive with SSRIs.

    Therefore, option D is correct.
