Eric, that's not true. A possible mechanism by which TCAs confer greater safety against serotonin syndrome is that most of them (not all) are 5-HT2a antagonists, which are used to treat SS. And they don't all necessarily promote 5-HT release -- according to Gillman, amitriptyline, for example, which is an SSRI, does not significantly increase serotonin levels.
