FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: LUVOX

User Comments:


For Obsessive Compulsive Disorder “It’s a miracle is what it is. This med allows me to function. Tried so many things and this is the only med to help with OCD. Took away a bunch of compulsions and anxiety associated with them. I find it easier to push away thoughts. Side effects- night sweats, sexual dysfunction, tiredness. Doesn’t work on depression it seems though its an SSRI. Still with these side effects it’s a miracle drug. Saved me. Been on 300mg for years. I should say going on it is hell, constant anxiety and panic and then one day it just drops and you feel better. It gets worse before it gets better. If you take this and feel terribly anxious, it’s working. Push through.”

For Obsessive Compulsive Disorder “On Luvox I woke up one morning and just decided I didn’t need to bite my nails anymore. After 40 years of nail biting I’m cured. It’s also helped my OCD disappear. It’s an amazing medication!”

For Obsessive Compulsive Disorder “I started taking Luvox for my OCD in 2007….50 my a day, then increase by 50 mg once a week until I reach a daily dose of 400 mg. At 350 mg per day, I began to feel like I could stop doing the repetitive behaviors, and at 400 mg, my Obsessive Compulsive Disorder ceased to exist! It. literally disappeared from my brain, like I never even had it!! I love Luvox, and I wouldn’t give up the freedom I have without OCD – for the world.”

For Obsessive Compulsive Disorder “After growing up much of my life leaving myself undiagnosed, I decided to start therapy for OCD and anxiety. I later decided to start taking medicine. I’m only 18 years old. They put me on Fluvoxamine/ Luvox. I’m currently on 200mg. It’s harder to notice a difference since it took forever to kick in, but overall I feel much better, and I’m able to be more social and not stress out. I’m able to let things go. The only side effect I notice is tiredness. However I’m able to cope.”

For Obsessive Compulsive Disorder “I once had a horrible experience in my life losing a friend but then I got over it but met another friend BUT my mind was making me think I would lose my new friend, like my old friend who stopped being my friend without telling me. Anyways I found out I had OCD & I started luvox. It did take a few extra weeks then expected but over the last month I’ve began to really not worry & have the compulsive consistent non stop worries! I’ve definitely came a long way. Especially that my friend assured me if he would stop being my friend he would let me know”

For Obsessive Compulsive Disorder “I know this medicine is supposed to be great but the internal tremors are driving me crazy. I’ve been on luvox for a week now and the tremors make my anxiety 10 times worse! I also have a raspy voice that comes and goes.”
