Although the exact mechanism of action is unknown, SEP-363856 is believed to activate TAAR1
(trace amine-associated receptor 1) in addition to 5-HT1A (serotonin 1A) receptors.
Miller, Avenues for the development of therapeutics that target trace amine associated receptor 1 (TAAR1
The only theoretical sources of concern for pressor effects are medications that act as norepinephrine releasers through interactions at the trace amine-associated receptor 1 (TAAR1
) (for more information on TAAR1

(16) Unlike the dextro isomers, L-amphetamine structures do not inhibit dopamine reuptake or cause euphoria, but can cause stimulation (eg, sleep disturbance) by inhibiting norepinephrine reuptake, and also by interacting with the trace amine-associated receptor 1 (TAAR1
), an intracellular receptor expressed within the presynaptic terminal of monoamine neurons.
