It worked for my depression. Takes awhile to get dosage right. Have taken for several years, worst side effect is insomnia. OCD is always with you--this med takes the edge off. You have to be strong and stop letting your mind torment you!

Frightening side effects. I literally have taken one dose and within a few hours had a pounding heart rate, sweating, dizziness, disoriented and racing thoughts. Have never experienced such before in my life. I will never take this medicine again.

It is happening quickly, and I have still only been on the generic Luvox for about a week now. I did not do a thing all day today except for stay in bed. If that is what the medication is going to do for me, make me not care about anything, then I am going to quit taking it. It is a good thing I only took 1/2 a pill daily instead of what the psychiatrist wanted me to take. I would hate to see ... Show Full Comment
