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.

I have still only been on the generic Luvox for a short time but I have noticed that the more I take it the more I have a hard time staying awake and I have almost no desire to do any of my housework.
