It is fully concivable that SSRI's alter the way that human interaction transpires.

For starters, they lower dopamine, a chemical inticately involved in socaial interaction, secondarily, they potently activate the 5-ht2a and 5-ht3 receptors, which are bad news for people with social anxiety. Activating the 5-ht2c receptor can also make people socally agressive.

It's not that I don't think that certain socialphobes could use a little tweeking, but rather that SSRI's are just plain MESSY.
