I can't really answer your question, but I can say that the SSRI's I have taken (Prozac, Zoloft) gave me virtually no side effects whatsoever, and of course there is also no real noticeable effect immediately following a single dose, so there is really no possiblity of addiction. To paraphrase Peter Kramer in Listening to Prozac, the effect is unrelated to the daily act of taking the drug, as opposed to addictive narcotics, which provide immediate gratification. When I took these meds, I might have as well been taking a vitamin as far as side effects were concerned. Obviously these drugs affect people differently, but their overall safety profile is probably a reason for their prevalence.
