[NEW] Ordering TCP from India

We have had good experience with Newlife Medicare Private Limited*** who supply Trivon, a reputable generic Tranylcypromine manufactured by Intas.  (has been officially available in India for several years).


Newlife Medicare Private Limited – Offering Trivon Tranylcypromine Tablet, Prescription, Treatment: Anti Depressent at Rs 180/strip in Nagpur, Maharashtra. Also find Tranylcypromine Tablet price list | ID: 26219311062

Their rate is ~USD 2.50 per 10 tablet strip and Intas manufactures them in boxes of 100 tablets (our recommended quantity multiple). Shipping is generally reasonable compared to other Indian generic suppliers, hence, why they’ve become our preferred supplier, and was USD 24 for a previous transaction of 2x10x10 strips (200 tablets) of Trivon. They quote you in USD but accept payment in INR which is done through Wise.com at the exchange rate of the day.

Tell them to provide the Trivon in the original boxes (like in their photo) for the sake of the clear display of the product particulars (e.g., emergencies, travelling through customs, if you were admitted to hospital etc.), in addition to for your own storage.


Purchasing is relatively straightforward and is done through IndiaMART using the built-in chat feature:

Create an IndiaMART account

Create a Wise.com account and do the respective identity verification which can be achieved by following the prompts and having a smartphone with you

Click the IndiaMART link above for the Trivon listing and then click ‘Get Latest Price’

You can leave the mobile number blank for privacy’s sake, it’s not essential, and click submit

Enter your quantity as number of boxes

In the requirement box say how many boxes of 10×10 tablets you are interested in, including shipping to the UK. Mention here that you require them in the original Intas manufacturer’s boxes.

Leave any other fields blank and submit

Wait for a response and you can continue the chat exchanges

When they quote you ask for how much is required in INR (Indian Rupees) — INR 100 = $AU 1.8, Euro 1.1, GBP 0.95

Follow their steps for how to make your payment on Wise.com

We can attest to this supplier being genuine and Trivon being a credible generic product.

Other drugs are also available.

Consider Donating to PsychoTropical

PsychoTropical is funded solely through generous donations, which has enabled extensive development and improvement of all associated activities. Many people who follow the advice on the website will save enormously on doctors, treatment costs, hospitalization, etc. which in some cases will amount to many thousands of dollars, even tens of thousands — never mind all the reduction in suffering and the resultant destruction of family, work, social, and leisure capability. A donation of $100, or $500, is little compared to those savings. Some less-advantaged people feel that the little they can give is so small it won’t make a difference – but five dollars monthly helps: so, do not think that a little donation is not useful.

  • MAOIs

    MAOI antidepressant drugs are safe and effective, with levels of side-effects that generally compare favourably with other drugs, and for tranylcypromine (TCP, Parnate) are notably better than most for not causing sexual side-effects or weight gain. Click here to visit the MAOI section.

  • Drug Adverse Reactions & Interactions

    A large proportion of patients do not get an ideal result form the first antidepressant that they are given, and it is frequently necessary to consider alternatives which may involve combinations of drugs. At present the fashion of using selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) endures, and, because this family of drugs have a higher chance of interacting with other drugs, drug-drug interaction problems are common and sometimes serious.
