Sorry, didn't know where to ask this, thanks. And I hope nobody is offended or anything.

If I were you, I would give it a try. The doctor is on your side. Maybe it WILL alleviate some of your suffering. If it doesn't work out for you, then tell him/her and maybe you could try something else. It certainly won't permanently make you feel less motivated.
If you don't try it, its possible you might be missing out on the one thing that might make you feel better!
I've been on alot of anxiety and antidepressants in my long history of these illnesses. I don't think that any med I ever tried took away my motivation.
I have had periods where I felt "flat" ... just semi depressed, but that is so much better than being full blown depressed/anxious ... and life is just that .... periods of life. You won't have to commit to this med forever.
That's just my little old opinion!!

As for motivation, while it's possible they could de-motivate you, they'll likely at least take the edge off your depression thus removing the biggest de-motivator of all.
