I've experienced this with both SSRIs and TCAs--the drugs that come most to mind being Zoloft and desipramine respectively. I guess I figured it had something to do with dopamine being suppressed while on the AD and then returning to normal levels, or perhaps rebounding to slightly above normal levels upon discontinuation of the AD. The reason I feel it is dopamine related is that there was a definite and significant increase in libido accompanying the discontinuation, as well as a feeling that might be described as a mild euphoria. I recall this feeling lasting for a few days after dumping Zoloft (this happened on more than one occasion, as I periodically would get dissatisfied with my state of mind while on Zoloft and drop the med), but for perhaps a couple weeks or so after discontinuing desipramine.
