Dopamine depletion is not good for GAD, the general misconception amongst doctors about GAD is that it is similar to physical anxiety, in fact the opposite is often true, GAD is mental anxiety without physical anxiety, the two are not totally related. Therefore it could be said that dopamine can in fact be very beneficial to gad, whilst it can have a negative impact on physical anxiety and social phobia. Ssri's increase serotonin beyond normal levels reducing mental anxiety but most likely increasing mental apathy.
