Not SSRIs, but I am on mirtazapine, and I find it just makes me docile. People say I am a lot more balanced than I used to be and that nothing ever seems to upset me unless somebody really massively gets on my tits (they don't know I take the stuff), but I guess that's precisely what mirtazapine does. Oh, and it does make you sleepy during the day. On the other hand, it lets you sleep like a baby at night.
I think there have been studies that people who are on NaSSAs also tend to be less aggressive both towards themselves and especially others, and are generally more likely to want their surroundings to be harmonious. So in a way, it can improve your social behaviour if you had an aggressive bent before. I didn't, not by a long shot, I was simply chronically depressed but never had any kind of violent antisocial tendencies.
I like to tell the few people who know about me taking mirtazapine that it sort of puts me on cruise control emotionally. Everything's a constant, slow and steady flow.
