> Irreversible monoamine oxidase inhibitors (sometimes referred to as suicide monoamine oxidase inhibitors)

I understand where this nickname comes from, but don't you think it's just a *little* bit tasteless?

> Tranylcypromine, phenelzine, and isocarboxazid are examples of irreversible, non-specific MAOIs. They bind both MAO-A and B and destroy them.

I've occasionally heard tranylcypromine referred to as "semi-reversible" (or something like that). Any idea what that's supposed to mean?
