I spent time on some of these drugs and it FWIW, I felt loopy at times, but never like having an A.

But I understand there are all sorts of experiences and opinions, too.

My fWW was indeed on AD drugs ( had not been on them for very long). And even though the drugs did not cause the A , I know they did not help either. I think her demeanor changed somewhat and made her "more susceptible " to the advances of the OM and of course , she loved hearing his "compliments" which kept her in the fog.

My SAWH had been on antidepressants for about 2 years and went off of them pretty much coinciding with the time the A started. He did not think he needed them anymore - he found something that alleviated his depression, I guess. His PoA, as they call it in love addict speak.

Now he is back on antidepressants.

I would not be willing to accept this as a contributor to infidelity.

I might consider that a depressed spouse, as depression lifted and he was no longer immobilized by depression, CHOSE to act on impulses he lacked the energy to carry out prior to treatment.

The dramatic personality-change side effects occasionally associated with ADs occur, generally, early in therapy.

Changes six months out, I would be more inclined to attribute to behavior consistent with cheating--not consistent with adverse drug effects.
