ANTI-depressants strip away joy for some users, say researchers.

Up to three in five experience the problem — caused by the drugs numbing the part of the brain which allows people to feel rewarded.

The researchers split 66 people into groups, with half receiving the anti-depressant escitalopram, and the other half getting a placebo.

They were then set a test with two options — one with plenty of rewards, the other with few.

People on the anti-depressants chose the less rewarding option more regularly than the placebo group. This suggested they were less responsive to treats.

Prof Barbara Sahakian, of the University of Cambridge, said the blunting was an unfortunate side effect.

She said: “They take away some emotional pain but unfortunately they also take away some enjoyment.”

Her team also found those given the drug were less likely to reach orgasm.

About 8.3million took anti-depressants in England last year.

They can prevent suicide but the pills have come under scrutiny with the NHS encouraging more group therapy.

LEEDS put their Premier League struggles behind them to ease into the FA Cup fifth round with a 3-1 win at Accrington Stanley.

And after one of their goals a fan stormed the pitch and celebrated by doing the WORM.

Footage posted to Twitter shows a fan on the pitch next to the Leeds away end at Accrington.

It appeared to come after Luis Sinisterra put Jesse Marsch's side 3-0 ahead 22 minutes from time.

Having jumped over the advertising boards, they dropped down to the turf and started doing the worm.

In the video, laughter can be heard from the travelling fans.

As the supporter stood up they were met by a steward, who frogmarched them off the pitch.

The fan cheered and pumped their fist as they were led away by security.

Under the Football Offences Act 1991 it is an offence for a person at a match to enter the pitch "without lawful authority or lawful excuse".

Jack Harrison, reportedly the subject of a £20million bid from Leicester, put the Prem side ahead on 23 minutes with a long-range wonderstrike.
