Some of these medications will absolutely remove all emotions, bad or good. Last year, I was heavily medicated when my husband surprised me with a new car. I was like, "Oh gee. Thanks." We can't afford new cars, and it really hurt his feelings.
I finally got to the point where I felt like that android on Star Trek (2nd Gen), the one who wanted to be human and have emotions, but he just wasn't equipped for it. Of course I didn't miss being depressed, but I didn't like being a robot.
I believe in psychiatric terms that this effect is known as "emotional blunting", or "emotional
flattening". I also believe that this kind of medication should be reserved for those who are suicidal or unable to function at all because of their depression.
Just my opinion-
