And stop points with rejected change in meds. and last full stop. What im feeling after approx. 7 months after stopping: 1.5 weeks atack of continuous eye pains. after the attack, righ
  2. I have been on and off the spectrum of SSRIs for the past 20 years for depression, anxiety, OCD, and binge eating disorder. Most recently, I was on Lexapro/Wellbutrin for quite some time, tried Effexor resulting in extreme anxiety and panic and an upswing in trichotillomania that I hadn't experienced in years, re-tried Prozac with one brief episode of deep depression and suicidal ideation while titrating up the dose and then was very tired/sleepy, and then recently started Luvox in mid November and am now at 150mg/day in divided doses. A few weeks ago I just stopped wanting to do everything, e
  3. Hello, After some really unsettling stuff and suicidal ideation, I came off of Luvox and Wellbutrin XL under care of my psychiatrist. I hadn’t been on the Luvox very long and my last dose was Jan 3rd. I had been on Wellbutrin XL 300mg for 4+ years and tapered off with my last dose on Jan 12th. Again, I am under a doctor’s care and have regular appointments to check-in, but she wasn’t able to give much information about some weird possible side effects or any time time other than “it should hopefully get better soon.” After the luvox, I had nausea and other intense GI sy
  4. Hey guys, so my Luvox (100mg) is giving me anorgasmia and also lost my libido, and I'm seeing pdoc in two days, need suggestions for a replacement to ask pdoc about, what meds have helped you and what were your experiences with them
  5. So I just started Luvox (fluvoxamine) 50mg, what's your experiences with it and any advice as to what to expect would be great, Asho
  6. Sup guys, I"ve been taking luvox, klnopin, and lamictal for Chronic Depersonalization and Derealization since 2009. This year I decided to try some stimulants to help with my dissociation. Adderal and Ritalin helped but caused pain. So...I recently went down on my luvox by 50mg for 7 days (I take 150 daily so I dropped to 100, skipped the afternoon dose), then the plan was to try straterra if no withdrawal type symptoms persist. I tried the straterra - and ever since I've had nothing but racing thoughts, mania, songs playing in my head, etc. So I stopped the straterra (obviously) after 2
  7. Sup guys, I've had a diagnosis of Chronic Depersonalization and Derealizaiton Disorder since 2008. Since that time I've been on a steady regimen of Luvox, Klonopin, and Lamictal (which is recommended by the University of London for Chronic DP) - since that time I've been pretty stable. But in the best interest of trying to improve some things I've lowered my klonpin and lamictal successfully. I recently tried Adderal - which helped dramatically with my motivation, apathy, and keeping me away and not so sedated. But it exacerbated a facial pain syndrome I have. Next up was Ritalin - I felt
  8. I've been on a course of Luvox, Klonopin, and Lamictal since 2009 for the treatment of a very rare Dissociative Condition (Chronic Depersonalization and Derealization) I "inherited" in 2008 (due to Zyprexa withdrawals and medication mismanagement by my Psychiatrist at that time). Since that time I've been very lucky to get the proper diagnosis and receive treatment that is in tune with the University of London Depersonalization Research Institute and have had some very good Psychiatrists and Neurologists work with me. However, now in 2016 I've tried to improve my quality of life and productivi

  11. Hi guys, I'm reading parts of a book (linked below) that notes how SSRIs are sometimes known for impeding the absorption of other meds that are being taken concurrently. It notes that Luvox is the worse SSRI regarding this. The book says that Klonopin and Xanax are two of the drugs that interact with Luvox through "CYP 3A4 inhibition." Does this mean that Klonopin and Xanax are less likely to work when taken with Luvox? By extension, would this mean that any other meds taken together with the Luvox will probably not be absorbed as well by the body? Page 536, along with Table 32.29-2:
  12. Hiya everyone, I have a whole host of conflicting mental illnesses that are very hard to treat (see signature line). I must take my Prozac to keep my OCD in check. Without it, the OCD runs rampant. But I believe the Prozac is causing me to ultra-rapid cycle (cycling every week, sometimes every day). I need to take anti-convulsants for my BP II. So, to break this stalemate, my pdoc and I were thinking of replacing the Prozac with Luvox. Can any of you share your experiences with this drug? Will it also help with generalized anxiety and panic disorder? I take the Prozac for those
  13. Has anyone ever been on this combo? they're adding in sertraline to my fluvoxamine.
  14. Hi all, I have been prescribed 25mg luvox for perinatal depression/panic disorder/agoraphobia. I originally tried zoloft but the diarrhea side effect was unbearable. It is my understanding that luvox is the only other SSRI my doctors are comfortable putting me on this late in pregnancy. I started out on 12.5mg as I am extremely sensitive to medications (thanks, panic disorder) and I take the luvox at night in order to dull down the side effects. I have since moved up to 25mg and I don't believe at this point they will want me to increase that dose. Anyway, I am once again experiencing terr
  15. So I have been put on zyprexa a couple of weeks ago to try and see if it works for my OCD It helps with the obsessive thoughts, but I STILL have anxiety problems related to OCD. Due to past experiences, one really bad with AD's I am apprehensive about trying Luvox or any other AD. My family wants me to stay FAR away from AD's. But what if Luvox would work? Take away mostly all my symptoms. I am doing okay on the Zyprexa, there has been improvement. Should I just stay where I am at as far as med combination?
  16. I started Luvox about a month ago and ever since I wake up at 5am in the morning. I used to sleep until about 10. But, every single day since I started taking it I've woken up at 5am. I take it at approximately 10pm at night with my Geodon. I have no problem falling asleep. It takes me like 10 minutes to be out cold. I just can't figure out why this is happening because it makes me want to sleep during the day. I brought it up to my pdoc and his response was I don't know so I've resorted to getting answers from people that have actually taken it. Any help is appreciated. I know in the past s
  17. I've had major ocd issues over the past few months both health related and life related. I've been on 100mg of Luvox for the past four days and wanted to know if anyone had any positive or negative experiences with it?
  18. Just introducing myself. I am a 35 year old woman who has been suffering from OCD since I was 14. I finally gave in and got help when I was 20-21. I should have done it earlier, but it just wasn't something people talked about and wasn't as "acceptable" to talk about back in then. I have been on so many anti-depressants, I can't even count them. Most recently I was on Lexapro and Abilify. Abilify was my miracle drug for OCD. I have never found anything that I could actually say "hey, this works for me!" before Abilify. Unfortunately I had to get off of it due to weight gain and increased blood
  19. I am a 35 year old male. I've had anxiety / ocd / depression my whole life. As a child, I didn't really "know" that I was "sick". It wasn't until I was older that I was sophisticated enough to understand. Looking back as far as I can remember I had the feelings/actions. It wasn't even until I was in my 30s that I acknowledged just how much of an impact all of this was having on my life. I knew that I was anxious / ocd / depressed, but I thought I was in a rut and could just "power through". I met a girl - who I am still with - that helped me understand that a 30 year rut was not a rut. I final
  20. Hi All, I was wondering if anyone here has made the switch from Lexapro (or any other SSRI) to Luvox to alleviate some/all sexual dysfunction caused by another. I am currently taking Lexapro for GAD/PD and it both does not control the anxiety as well as chemically castrates me. My doctor is in the process of doing a very slow cross-taper (I still have very little, if any, sexual functioning at this point) because anecdotally he states that there is less sexual dysfunction associated with Luvox due to an unknown or yet-to-be elucidated mechanism of action - perhaps action at the sigma-1 rece
  21. About four to five months ago I noticed that my pupils were different sizes. I saw an optometrist who said there was nothing to worry about, they were just responding differently to light. I looked into whether this could be due to medication and found some anecdotal evidence that it was possible, and my psychiatrist and GP weren't concerned. At the time I'd been taking seroquel for a couple of months. Two days ago the edge of my vision in the eye with the larger pupil started getting blurry so I saw an optometrist again. He checked things out and apparently now the larger pupil is not respond
