Obnoxious people and SSRIs

Question for any prescribing doctors out there, or anyone else...

Do you ever worry that by prescribing SSRIs to obnoxious, disagreeable bullies, particularly in management roles (and especially on a long term basis), you are continuing reins of dominance abuse?

An analogy might be the way cocaine fuelled an overly masculine and abusive culture in investment banking / sales / media in the 1980s.

I particularly worry about the subtle persuasion these compounds are having on the experiences of young adults have entering the work force, especially if they are not drug takers / have no experience of anti depressants. It's so brutal - f*ck*g lobsters fighting. Why should our young people be subjected to these incompetent and overconfident people in power?
