 4  OCD,anxiety,depression Dry mouth. I can feel it wearing off at about the 22 hour, so the CR version may level that out. I take the generic fluvoxamine. This medication has calmed me down and cleared my head. Some memory difficulties. I take this with Anafranil to get rid off harmful thoughts...combination works well. M 57 4 months

 5  OCD Depression Anxiety Constipation (chronic...all the other symptoms are occasional), forgetfulness ("what was I just saying?"), restless legs, insomnia, takes a long time to reach orgasm (but it IS eventual) This drug is my lifeline. With having OCD, a "regular" antidepressant missed the mark (I tried many...Zoloft, Prozac, Paxil, Celexa). With Luvox, my obsessive thoughts are so much more under control. It also helps a bit with the anxiety that goes along with OCD. Without Luvox, I am irrational, short-tempered, super impatient, off-the-charts anxious, with horrid obsessive thoughts for days.

 3  Pure OCD Very tired all time (12 hours sleep not enough), paranoid at times, reduced creativity (felt like my imagination was suppressed), Sugar craving ( I don`t know if this drug caused this but I was always wanting to eat candy, and was never like that before taking the drug), I gained weight over time and used to be extremely slim which was a bit upsetting (Also, do not know if I can blame luvox only as it was probably a combination of that, being tried all the time and playing too much xbox). Also this drug increases aggression drastically, and it has been proven to be associated with an 8.4 times increase in violence compared with other antidepressants (check out wikipedia). Probably the most effective drug for OCD, but comes with side effects. You can avoid being tired all the time by not drinking caffeine! My psychiatrist did not tell me that this medication inhibits caffeine by 5X. Check it out at wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluvoxamine So drinking one cup of coffee is like drinking atleast five. Avoid any caffeine at all costs! I have done a lot of research on this drug, and it also acts like an antipsychotic, by reducing dopamine in certain parts of the brain. So yeah, it has antidepressant and anti psychotic effects which both help for OCD. It does this through being an agonist of the o1 receptor agonist. Also, start the dose at 25mg for a week, then 50mg for a week, and then 100 mg. I went above 100mg and there is not any additional benefit, so going all the way up to 300mg just seems a bit like a waste of money. Up to you though. This is strong medication but when used with care can work really well for OCD. It also has quite a lot of side effects and drug interaction which you might want to look out for. Also, withdrawal is horrible. Makes you feel detached from reality and cannot concentrate or even think clearly. So yeah, good luck. M 16 7 years

 1  OCD, depression, anxeity I took Luvox Cr for a coarse of 7 months, september 2012-april 2013. While on luvox I felt every sedated and apathetic. While I was on 100mg I would sleep most of the day .I experienced emotional blunting side effects. And stopped caring I eventually dropped out of college due to fatigue and my inability too keep up because of the mental problems with luvox .I am now weaning off luvox and I am on 25 mg and still deal with sedation and mild emotional bluntness. Before taking ssrI I believed medication. Was going to help me greatly but now I believe Erp therapy to be the way to deal with ocd (pure o) sexual obessions. By the way withdrawal is horrible luvor has yhe shortest half life 15 hours. F 19 7 months

 5  OCD, Anxiety The primary drawback I have experienced is reduced libido and difficulty with orgasm. It is definitely something to take into account if you need more than 100 - 125 mg per day. However, maintaining a high level of physical activity (weightlifting and walking for me) seemed to offset the side effects significantly. The side effects worsen with dosage increases. Fortunately it actually does what it says it does. For me at least, it eliminated all anxiety issues and reduced compulsive thought patterns by at least 75%. Even under significant stress I can still get through really bad days w/o anxiety attacks and minimal compulsive thought patterns. M 55 15 years

 4  Obsessive thinking, GAD, depression Initially some nausea and headaches, but tolerable. Went away after a week. Where all other AD's failed, Luvox managed to stop the obsessive thinking dead in it's tracks within a few days and lifted the depression. For anxiety it lags a bit behind and I had hoped for more, but you can't have it all I guess... I can't tolerate a higher dose than 50mg because upping to 100 made me -still after a month- feel suicidal. Not a miracle drug but it definitely made me feel better. The good news is that it doesn't mess with sexual function at all. I tried to quit recently, but after two weeks I felt just as bad as when I started. So now I'm back on it again for a week and I already feel the benefits. M 58 6 months

 4  depression and OCD Nightmares nearly every night. Low sex drive, hard to climax. For a while it reactivated my Tourette's Syndrome. So tired for the first year. A hard medication to become accustomed to. Should not be given to anyone under 21, in my opinion. One of the Columbine shooters (Eric Harris) reportedly was on it. Helpful, although I still have bouts of depression (have had ECT in the last two years) and OCD increases with stress. M 53 10 years

 4  Depression Insomnia only Took it back in 07 after other initial ssris became gradually less effective (ie zoloft, lexapro). It made my mood at least a 9/10 and my libido skyrocketed. Not only no sexual side effects compared to the other ssri (this is documented in literature), but actually enhanced it. Had to go off due to getting severe insomnia on it. I just could not get to sleep and would have to take medication each night to initiate sleep. I rated 4 instead of 5 only due to the insomnia and apparently this is not a common effect. Rather, its more common to get sleepiness and hence PM dosing is suggested. So its definitely worth a shot. M 28 30 days

 5  OCD, major depression i have not had any major side effects, except low sex drive. I also take Prozac 20 mg. which also have side effects of low sex drive. I rather have low sex drive then continue feeling depressed and obsessive thoughts that i want to die. I LOVE LUVOX! Luvox have saved my life for the past 11 years. I have been on Zoloft in the past which was good with the combination of Prozac, but after 4-5 years the combination stop working. Once, i got started on Luvox 11 years ago, my depression lifted and also the thoughts associated with OCD within 6 weeks. I had to be very patient. Thank God for a supportive family and co workers at that time. I completed therapy also with the addition of Prozac 20 mg. to be taken with the LuVox. I have also taken Luvox CR that work well also for a short time, but it is very expensive and i had to return to regular Luvox. I am currently taking a dosage of 150 mg of Luvox with 20 mg. of Prozac daily and continue feeling GREAT. I am careful with other drugs that may interact with Luvox, because once certain drugs interact with Luvox, it takes a some days (unknown amount) for the Luvox to start working again. I love Luvox and pray it never stop working. I am a person who will have to be on antidepressants for the remaining of my life, because i of the three episodes of depression i have experienced from the age of 21 to presently. I have some small depression or OCD episode, but nothing severe since 2006. I need for Luvox to keep on working. F 38 11 years

 5  Obsessive thoughts, depression First 3 weeks, total insomnia but energetic nonetheless. Week 4, insomnia gone but near total loss of appetite. Noticed marked improvement in thought patterns and depression within 2 days. If the mental changes that this drug has produced continue, I will say that this is the best drug I have ever tried for obsessions and depression. I have taken celexa, lithium, seroquel, abilify and trazodone all at wildly varying dosages. Luvox is a miracle for me. F 27 30 days

 5  OCD/Anxiety Old luvox... Weight gain, problems with reaching orgasm at times, occasional heartburn, always had to be drinking something. On old luvox for about 9 years. Stopped taking it after being on only 25 Mg a day for 2 years. Totally off for a year. Owning a business and working odd jobs to stay afloat in this economy made the OCD/Anxiety return. Started 50 Mg of CR 3 days ago. Side effects, some muscle twitching and the wierd, vivid dreams. Although, these dreams seem to only happen when I'm in that half awake state in the mornings and drift back to sleep before the alarm clock goes off. For people that say it's doing nothing, give it a month. Some people feel better from the start. Others, it can take about 30 days. It doesn't work for everyone nor do other ssri's. That's why there are different ones. But give it a complete chance. Attitude does play a major roll. Keep it positive. I've spent many years coaching people with anxiety disorders and teaching relaxation techniques. When I was first diagnosed, my Dr thought I'd be a semi active recluse at best. By not giving up, learning that I could contol this brought the fighter out in me I once had. All anxiety disorders can suck the life out of you and bring on unpleasant physical problems, also. Fight it! It gets worse before it gets better, but fight! M 43 10 years

 3  generalized anxiety disorder sleepiness: I'm not sure how much to blame on Luvox because I take Topomax and Xanax too but I think Luvox contributes to the fact that I'm always fighting exhaustion. sexual side effects: Luvox is much better than some other SSRI's but still lowers my libido and and makes it harder to get an erection and harder to come. The side effects are the problem. Luvox does an excellent job of managing my anxiety and depression. It's no help for obsessive thinking but nothing I've tried is. One other problem is I can't go up in dosage from 50 mg if I'm having a rough period because it's murder on my stomach. I'm looking for an alternative but everything else seems worse. M 51 5 years

I was given this during a visit to a hospital, which later, decided that they would just drop it off cold turkey though it is advised to slow dosages down slowly.

 5  OCD, Depression Restless nights and sweating while adjusting to meds. Bouts of paranoia and anxiety while adjusting to meds. Started at 100 mg/day and went to 300 mg/day within two to three weeks. Side effects were intense with the higher doses. I backed off the higher dose and worked my way down to the 50 mg/day and my emotions stabilized within a week or two. The obsessions had left within a couple weeks of starting the medication, but I had to deal with the side effects. So far, so good at 50 mg/day. If the obsessions start again, I'll ratchet the meds up to 75 mg/day. The longest period of time dealing with the paranoia and anxiety was about 2.5 weeks. Those bouts would come and go. (Note: I'm also taking 20 mg of prozac / day {morning} and 7.5 mg of Deplin per day.) I take the Luvox at dinnertime. M 53 2 months

 4  OCD I recently noticed that I occasionally have trouble reaching climax. (I don't know if it was always like that or not, being that when I first started, I just hit puberty and might have thought it was normal). If I forget to take a dosage, I become severely depressed. I also saw somewhere that some side effects could cause sexual interests in young children.. Unfortunately, I have those interests, but thinking back, I only started having them about 4 years ago, when I started. So yes, pedophilia. M 18 4 years

 5  ocd/anxiety/depression/aggitation Other meds that I'm on give me some of the same side effects.. so the only new side effect that I haven't been dealing with for years anyway is excessive sweating. Its has changed my life for the better..after being treated for mild depression(with paxil,lexapro,cymbalta,ect..) for years and still not feeling any better..then being treated for bipolar disorder(with geodon,abilify,lithium,ect..) for the last few years and still having a lot of anger and aggitation issues..they started treating my ocd with luvox mixed with the lamictal I have been on for the major depressive disorder and my life did a complete turn around..I feel tons better and my relationships got 100 times better...and currently they are wheening me off the lamictal and putting me on zoloft..so I can deal with the sweating because the perks of this med are more then worth it!

I also kicked a hole through our kitchen wall for god knows why? I felt nauseous for the entire 5 weeks and was just so angry at the whole world. I felt withdrawn and sad becasue of the depression before starting Luvox so it wasn't the disease that was making me aggressive, it was this horrible drug.

 3  OCD, PTSD, GAD EXTREME tiredness, jaw clenching, loss of appetite, watery diarrhea, constipation, nausea I have gone from never napping and trouble sleeping at night to having to lie down for a nap 3 times a day and going to bed as early as 7:30pm. I am a 5'3" woman and went from 132 lbs (weighed at dr two days after starting Luvox) and am now 125 lbs less than three weeks later. I don't know that it's helped my OCD and axiety - I'm just too tired to care about anything anymore. I'm exhausted all the time. It's hard to say what's better - always being on edge, constant racing thoughts, & insomnia or being completely apathetic and exhausted all the time. Going back to psych for follow-up in two days.

 3  Anxiety & Depression Nil - perhaps a lttile more tired. Havent had the full effect of Luvox as yet hence only a rating of 3. Only on a low dose to start. Had to go off Tofranil because of severe constipation and wight gain. I also take Zyprexa 5mg at night and Xanax 0.25mg 3 x per day. From reading some others comments perhaps Luvox will help with my not wanting to socialise - find social situations boring. Think I will reduce Zyprexa to 2.5mg at night also because of weight gain.

 4  Anxiety and mild OCD. Vivid dreams, occasional night sweats, loss of appetite. I am a 19 year old female who has had anxiety and mild OCD for about 5 years. I suffered badly from obsessive thoughts which caused insomnia and was very tiring and stressful. I found luvox has worked for me. I am on a higher dose-100 mg 2xper day but I really love it. I don't get social anxiety anymore or obsessive thoughts. Also, I don't pick at my skin or clean for hours like I used to. A week ago I missed a few doses accidently and I found myself craving sugar and fatty foods like I used to when I was stressed. I know it shouldn't be used to control your diet. But Luvox has given me the ability to control my sugar cravings (probably related to my old stress habbits). Be careful as it is a strong drug but for me it has worked! And I love it! F 19 2 months

 4  OCD & PTSD I currently take this medication in conjunction with Adderall. Once my body and mind became acclimated to the medicine (for me, 2-3 doses), I noticed immediate improvement in both my levels of anxiety and repeditive behaviors. Adversely, however, though I have experienced NO erectile disfunction or lack of sex drive at all, I have turned 180 degrees from frequent premature ejaculation candidate to "rowboating across the Pacific," and just about losing interest in the expedition before reaching a normal climax. Still, this medicine seems to work where others either worsened my symptoms or had no affect whatsoever. Hopefully, my trouble ejaculating will work itself out as my regimen of medication and therapy sessions progress. I would imagine that there exist some mental exercises that will aid in that respect. However, if it never works itself out completely, I can at least be thankful (as well as my significant other) that I do not reside at the other end of the spectrum. M 39 30 days

 1  depression-mild OCD nausea, sweating, panic attacks, restlessness in legs, poor appetite, EXTREME LETHARGY, headache, quiet, depressed, I have only been on this medication for 3 weeks and my depression and anxiety has tripled in those 3 weeks. I have not wanted to do anything, go anywhere or see anyone. Suicidal thoughts began to occur after taking this medication. I cannot stop crying and I felt like I had no reason to live. I am slowly coming off the luvox....currently at only 100mg 1x a day.....I am hoping my doctor will shorten the time for me to come off of this drug. I would not recommend this drug to anyone, I have never experienced as much depression and anxiety in my life until going on this medication. I stayed in bed for 3 days straight and only got out of bed to go to work. I lost all motivation to do anything and I had no reason to live. Please be careful with this drug.....luckily I have a great family that noticed my change in behavior quicker than myself. F 28 5 days
200 1X D
