Drug Shortage Resolved

Oxford Pharmaceutical's (Totowa, NJ) antidepressant drug “Marplan” (isocarboxazid, 10-mg dosage) has been removed from the US Food and Drug Administration’s list of drug shortages. Oxford resumed normal distribution of Marplan on May 27.

Marplan is a second-line treatment for depression offered as an option for patients who are unresponsive to other antidepressants such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or traditional antidepressants such as amitriptyline.
