I find that SSRI's _do_ tend to dull expression/experience of full feelings. On an SSRI, I feel fear much less intensely. (For example, I can see an image of violence on the tv news or in a film and feel -- nothing -- whereas unmedicated I need to leave because the fear it provokes is less intense.)
I think that in order to stay AD free and experience the benefits of a sharper mind, etc., you need to find another way to handle the problem than by taking an AD.
