I ask this because while I did read in this Australian Government webpage that it inhibits the reuptake of serotonin I have seen no studies that have mentioned any such interaction with the serotonin transporter. Could somebody direct me to any such study or to some study that investigates just how pethidine can contribute to the development of serotonin syndrome?

If you do a Pubmed search for "meperidine serotinin" a few papers come out. –  nico Apr 21 '13 at 17:49
