FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: LUVOX CR

User Comments:


For Social Anxiety Disorder “I was taking 300MG of this medication for almost 1 year. I stopped taking it for about 4 months because I wanted to see how I would feel being medication free. I faced withdrawal symptoms for 1-2 weeks after suddenly quitting from 300MG to nothing. The withdrawal symptoms weren’t severe at all. During the time when I was on it, I had peace of mind. I can’t describe the experience other than I felt so good that I have decided to start taking it once more. I suffered from Social Anxiety, OCD, and extreme depression.”

For Anxiety and Stress “I have taken many SSRIs in the past and this one worked far better for me than any other. Unfortunately I no longer have health insurance or a job and can’t afford it. I now take Celexa, but it doesn’t work near as well.”

For Obsessive Compulsive Disorder “I have taken Luvox CR for 2 yrs and regular Luvox for 5 yrs before. I was taking 150mg at night but I have much better results taking it in the morning. Usual side effects(dry mouth etc.) dissipate in a few weeks. Best medicine for me and I pray it keeps working but 7 years total is pushing it.”

For Anxiety and Stress “I have very high stress levels and panic disorder. This has helped with my stress some and my anger levels have been a lot less severe. I take other medications for anxiety attacks so I don’t think it has changed that any. My OCD hasn’t changed either but I’ve never found a medication to change my compulsions or obsessive thoughts.”

For Obsessive Compulsive Disorder “I’m taking this for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, I’ve taken it for about 6 months. It has helped slightly. My pharmacy couldn’t order it fast enough so 3 days off of it, I had a headache and threw up at work. Overall, I have had help with this. I have to take it at night because it makes me very sleepy.”

For Post Traumatic Stress Disorder “I have some wierd combinations of “illnesses” I take this to help with PTSD, OCD, and ADHD. I am doing so much better overall, and better than any other drug I’ve tried for PTSD, so I am happy with this drug.”
