Comment:
This medication works fairly well, but the choice to use it or not is a bit of a toss-up when you consider the side effects. It helps with anxiety and OCD, reducing the impact to about half what it was before, but the effectiveness fluctuates.

Comment:
I have tried handfuls of other drugs, and Luvox is the only one that has worked wonders for my OCD- I actually forget I have it most times. It no longer affects my life.
