One has to wonder: if not for the side-effect of causing 'severe haemolytic anemia,' whether we'd all have another, better designed, catacholaminergic antidepressant in nomifensine, these days.

That said, I do not understand why a replacement for nomifensine never seems to have been in the pipeline. Was it just an exception, in its apparent lack of abuse potential? The market for it is there.
