> 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.

This article suggests that dopamine while it does not say exactly dopamine is lowered I think having a dual uptake of serotonin and dopamine when it should just be dopamine may one increase the amount of serotonin beyond expected maybe even beyond theraputic levels and 2 lower the dopamine as the reuptake is to be purely dopamine but is now being shared by serotonin so perhaps not as much dopamine is getting to the receptors I intend to look into this further.
