I'm am pretty sure it's the confidence and positivity that the drug elicits. The anxiety itself may not be diminished but you handle it better.

With drugs of this class, you gain more control over your eating habits. Typically the result is weight loss, but you can *choose* to eat if you want to.

> Overall I just feel more engaged in life. Effexor helped somewhat but seemed to leave me progressively more detached (socially and interest wise). I actually want to do things (read, watch a movie, talk to friends etc).

This case report comes to mind:

I first read it many years ago (think 10-15 years). It's about Parkinson's, but there is a lot of symptom overlap between depression, the negative syndrome of schizophrenia, and Parkinson's disease.
