Motivation suppression

Motivation suppression can be described as a significant temporary decrease in one's desire to be productive or engage in certain activities. These tasks most often include tasks deemed challenging or unpleasant, such as working, studying, cleaning, and doing general chores. Stronger motivation suppression can cause one to lose their desire to engage in any activities, even the ones that would usually be considered entertaining or rewarding to the user. This effect can lead onto severe states of boredom and even mild depression when experienced at a high level of intensity for prolonged periods of time.

Motivation suppression is often accompanied by other coinciding effects such as sedation and thought deceleration. It is most commonly induced under the influence of heavy dosages of antipsychotic compounds, such as quetiapine, haloperidol, and risperidone. However, it can also occur under the influence of heavy dosages of cannabinoids, benzodiazepines, during the offset of stimulants, and during the withdrawal symptoms of almost any compound.
