Of course, if your goal in life is to gain weight and become a borderline alcoholic asshole with limited impulse control and no orgasms, SSRI drugs might be for you. But don't worry, the Healthcare Industrial Complex is just here to help...
(I'm sure there's someone out there who has been saved by these things, but I just got home from an evening with a friend who recently became a drunk, irritable asshole for reasons that I suspect have a lot to do with going on the meds. She was obviously sort of hung up and depressed before, but the drinking problem coincidentally started showing up about the time her personality shifted to talkative and erratic right after going on Paxil [which I can't believe is still being prescribed, given it's well-documented problems].)
