It leaves the patient fairly lethargic, and sometimes can even heighten the original symptoms. These medications almost seem to sedate the patient rather than treat them. Although medical professionals tend to rely on these, stating their effectiveness, I beg to differ. I do not feel that rendering a patient almost emotionless would be a preferred treatment.
