zoloft and apathy

Fascinating discussion. I've been on and off zoloft for a couple of years, and I too can relate to this apathy- to a certain extent. The tricky thing, though, is that I don't "feel" it as a drug effect, per se. It is difficult for me to whether it is a discrete effect of the drug or if I just stopped caring so much about everything, coincidentally, right after I started taking zoloft. I think I know the answer.

But that's the subtlety of SSRI's, I guess. It's sort of a paradoxical situation, I suppose: I have a vague awareness that I'm more complacent with my situation and those around me who would have previously brought me down or depressed me with their lack of "depth" or whatever, yet I am apathetic about being apathetic. It could be an attribute of getting into my late 20's and simply not caring as much about small things as I used to. Or, it could be just "not sweating the small stuff" or whatever. But there is one thing I should care about more, though, which is getting back to work, which has nothing to do with this bulletin board!
