Jeff, I too have experienced the apathy that can result from some of these meds. Naltrexone has worked very well for me as an augmentation. Here are some links for your reference:

Augmentation of Antidepressants with Naltrexone

SSRI's and Apathy

In corresponding with Dr Dante (who posted in the above links) I discovered that he had obtained a patent with the intent of establishing some credibility for the augmentation. He has been trying to initiate some interest in controlled studies that might lead to approval of Naltrexone as an augmentation. If you review the patent be sure to view all of the claims.

US Patent 5512593: Composition and method of treating depression using natoxone or naltrexone in combination with a serotonin reuptake inhibitor.

Best regards... Wayne
