Interesting question, with mulitple perspectives. Prozac (fluoxetine) can help manage depressive and anxiety symptoms quite well. Maybe this seems to you, a little too well. I've seen people whose depressions were so severe they could not relate to others at all. For these, Prozac (fluoxetine) and others can open up whole worlds of possibility - allowing experiences of interpersonal connection, communication, and care.
