This article finds that the response to a reward (in this case chocolate) was blunted by SSRIs.  Exercise, healthier diet, Vitamin D, stress management, sunlight and increased intake of healthier fats have all been shown to greatly improve mental health and brain function, with only positive “side effects.”
