Because of the dangerous adverse reactions (including the risk of death), individuals should not take methylphenidate if they have taken a class of drugs known as monamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors within 14 days. Most MAO inhibitors are antidepressants, but some anti-tuberculosis drugs such as Ethambutol also have MAO effects. Since drug users are prone to many infectious diseases, it is not unheard of for drug abusers to come down with tuberculosis (TB).
