Comment:
I have been taking 600 mg daily for over two years (I took the fluvoxamine prior to Luvox CR's release). It has helped with the OCD.

However, I have had serotonin syndrome three times while taking this medicine due to changes of other drugs.

Comment:
Been taking 200mg of luvox cr for about two months up from the 150 I was taking. The extra 50 mg seem to help even more, I suffer no more side effects. The obsessive thoughts are few and far between but not gone completely, I recently started taking 25mg of Seroqeul at night to help me sleep it feels as though with the addition of the new meds the edge has been really taken off.
