Citalopram & Fluoxetine made me numb & apathetic, but helped well with anxiety & depression.
Currently taking Venlafaxine which I don't think is causing as much numbness & apathy, & still seems to be reducing anxiety & depression (although I say that hesitantly, because I haven't been on it for very long).
There's no doubt in my mind that meds can reduce anxiety & depression, whether the side effects outweigh the benefits is another question, & likely depends on the individual / meds in question.
