> My name is Treg, and I'm 65. I've been on some kind of psychotropic medications almost continuously since I was 18 for very refractory, hard-to-treat major depression with psychotic features.. I was on Cymbalta when Hurricane Katrina washed away everything I owned, and I didn't even care. I was unasble to grieve and mourn. Now I am taking 20 mg of Prozac and find that I've become extremely apathetic. I don't do anything except what's absolutely necessary. My once active mind is now innocent of any ideas or thoughts. I have nothing to say to anyone. Is the Prozac causing this? Is this common?

It has been suggested that the ssris lower dopamine and cause apathy. Perhaps the combinatin of an ssri plus a dopamine agonist such as miraprex might be beneficial.
