Imipramine, the TCA involved in the early reports, possesses weak serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SRI) capacity which is usually insufficient to precipitate serotonin toxicity, even if combined with MAOIs. Following the introduction of clomipramine, more severe reactions were reported in combination with MAOIs, reflecting the fact that clomipramine is a more potent blocker of serotonin reuptake than imipramine. This variation, and the unpredictability of reactions with imipramine, caused confusion in the literature, especially because the mechanism of the reaction was not widely understood by clinicians until the 1980s (despite extensive evidence from animal work).
