> i started aytipical antipsycotics last summer under the guidance of my psyciatrist, she said that it may be my best treatment from the look of my symptoms (apathy, anhedonia) even though ive never heard voices or anything like that

They're used for many other things, I know the stigma well of taking one but they're not just used for thatt.

, anyway i cant say ive ever noticed much help from them, so im thinking should i really be on these? and can they do more harm than good, and what are the side effects of the d2 antagonism? can it block the activating effects of prozac, NADH and caffeine too?

No. In fact low doses of atypicals are used to augment prozac. Caffeine would not be the best if you have any anxiety disorder.

What atypical is it?

Generally Zyprexa and Seroquel are considered the safest and the benefits far outweigh the risks, but there are others as well. Somewhere between 0.1 and 0.5% risk of TD probably. Its unclear. Only Risperdal has had any major reports of unwanted effects.
