have you tried talk therapy? Stimulants kind of help with motivation, but its more like they help you stay focused on stupid stuff...this is why they're doled out to kids who have to sit in boring schools all day. They're great worker-bee meds, but motivation is more something that needs to be developed.

Anyway, if you need a lift, straterra, provigil, stims, maybe some of the newer dopamine agonist meds for Parkinson's might help....still, I think talk therapy would probably be the best option long-term. Switching off of the SRI onto something else (MAOI, TCA, mood stabilizer, etc.) might also help, since SRIs tend to dampen motivation anyway.

Good luck.
