I googled and found this mention of escitalopram in Pheochromocytoma: pitfalls
in the biochemical evaluation (Dobri et al., 2014):
Although tricyclic antidepressants are known to increase NE/NMN levels, newer classes of antidepressants which inhibit NE neuronal reuptake are potentially associated with falsepositive results. Clinicians need to inquire about the use of
