I have been on Luvox CR for 10 years. I was taking 150 mg. twice a day. I decided to try natural supplements and in 3 months I couldn't handle the obsessive thoughts at all.

Completely annihilated my obsessive thoughts and compulsive behavior within a week. It also dissolved my social anxiety to the point that I can enjoy myself in social situations, something I would never have believed possible. Initial few weeks of drowsiness actually proved beneficial, as it combatted my anxiety-inspired insomnia. I'm extremely grateful to have encountered this medication.
