I was looking for an answer to your question in "Review of medical Pharmacology" and found no answer, but it would have to be 50 years. But listen to this:
"The MAO inhibitors have been almost completely superceded by the antidepressants related to tranquillizers. In retrospect it is doubtful that even iproniazid had significant usefulness in major depressions. Indeed there are many studies that question whether the Hydrazines are superior to placebos." Doses for Nardil are given as 30-45mg, then 5-20mg. Parnate is given as 20mg initially and 10-20 maintenance.
Blast from the past, eh? Published 1968.
