I think the SSRIs can supress dopamine, but it probably depends on your initial biochemical makeup. If people start with a low serotonin / dopamine ratio, then the SSRI would probably work better.

yes i restarted 20 mg on Dec 21, and my anhedonia is awful. i can't even motivate enough to take a shower, and can barely get out of bed. i feel like a zombie, it's unendurable. I want to stop taking it so badly, but feel i need to give it the requisite 6 weeks since i didn't last time. Or i may reduce it now to 10mg, since on my first trial i felt best when it was washing out of my system. i started on 20 mg instead of 10mg because i thought the onset of action would be faster. i can't tell if my anhedonia is deppression or prozac related and i'm terrified that i'll get permanent, irreversible anhedonia from the prozac. should i just stop it altogether now? i've also been reducing my lamictal from 400 to 200 because i think it may be causing my cognitive fog, but don't feel any differently since i reduced it.
