I found that ALL the serotonin drugs caused fact I believe that this is the response that manufactures intended when developing SSRIs, etc. I think that's why we see so much variation in dosage, and "tweaking" of dosage when it comes to these meds.

Some degree of apathy is needed to subdue anxiety, ocd, depression, etc. The only meds I have taken that have allowed me to retain a full range of emotions (without apathy) are the MAOIs. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to be able to function normally, respond to life normally (laugh and cry appropriately).

At one time, I thought nothing could be worse than true depression...until I experienced complete apathy.
