    For me, no. It's one of the bad perks of SSRI's. Been on Zoloft, Celexa and currently fluoxetine for 20 years. The higher the dose, the more numb your brain becomes.

    If you ever decide to get off of them. Make sure it's very slow. 4-5% every 2-4 weeks to avoid withdrawals.

      Absolutely right, I takes an age to get off this poison, I'm just coming to the end of my stopping Prozac after taking 10mg for 30yrs plus, you can not take too long. My recommendation is to double the time medics say, you should then be OK. The effects can be life changing, I will be finishing two intensive weeks of medical tests next week including one and a half hours in a MRI scanner. Please be so careful. Good luck.

      Excellent on your tapering John. Exactly right. With age comes more wisdom especially with getting on SSRI's. You learn just what they do to you.
