I started taking Luvox CR a couple of days ago for depression and anxiety and have noticed a few dramatic changes; I have started having trouble falling asleep and am waking up very early, I have lost practically all interest in food and the first day after I started taking it I became very hyperactive (I know that antidepressants are supposed to make you happier, but dancing around the house singing, getting far more work done in an hour than would normally be done in three, and talking so quickly that people had trouble keeping up with me...?..I hadn't expected the effect to be that strong...) I wanted to know whether these are common side effects of the drug and also whether they are worth mentioning to my doctor at all? Thanks, LittleMe Answered by Mila Fenn 6 months ago.
It's very feasible that they is also, even though no one on the net is relatively going to be a designated and correct reply. If you relatively wish an reply, then you are going to must ask your medical professional of whom prescribed the remedy to you within the first location. If those matters are relatively bothering you then you definately must be certain the whole thing is ok and your medical professional is mostly the nice one for the activity. So simply hold in there and get any abnormalities looked at earlier than it is too overdue. Best of good fortune. Answered by Shani Kennemuth 6 months ago.

I just started taking Luvox CR for OCD three days ago, and I feel incredibly lazy. I don't want to do anything. I know it's only been three days, which is why I haven't contacted my psychiatrist about this yet. I was hoping someone who has taken it before could tell me if they've felt this way too. Will this laziness go away? I'm worried because I'm on 100 mg and I'm supposed to up the doze by 50 mg every week until I reach 300 mg. If I feel this lazy on 100 mg, what will I feel on 300 mg? Also, what are your experiences with caffeine, alcohol, cigarettes, and weight gain while on Luvox? I will ask my psychiatrist about this stuff, I just want someone's opinion who has been on it before. Thanks. Answered by Margit Reinholtz 6 months ago.
I've been on Luvox CR for about 5 weeks now for postpartum OCD. It makes me feel super lethargic. But.... it has helped me tremendously with the obsessive thoughts I was having. So, I guess so far it's been worth it. My psychiatrist said he might want to try a small dose of another medication (like Cymbalta) to give me more energy. There's side effects to every medication. I've found that you just have to choose which side effects are more tolerable than others. I haven't had any weight gain on the Luvox. I was drinking a cup or two of coffee every day for the tiredness but I have also had a great deal of anxiety which caffeine doesn't help. I don't know anyone on Luvox CR. I'd be interested in hearing how it's continuing to affect you. Answered by Shanell Hall 6 months ago.
i've got in no way taken Luvox. I even have taken a great style of different psych meds, and am presently taking 3 on the 2d(i'm additionally taking Seroquel and thinking if that's making my melancholy worse). yet, i understand once I study up on each and all the ingredient outcomes of drugs, they sound terrible to me too. yet, remember, they impression people in different procedures. some people have undesirable ingredient outcomes from meds, some do no longer. in the experience that your rfile needs to place you on it, attempt it out, and be in contact with your wellness practitioner in case you sense such as you have become manic or having undesirable ingredient outcomes. I remember taking Celexa and that made me horribly manic. yet, you may nicely be waiting to take it, and not advance into manic. As for the Luvox, provide it a attempt, see the way it works, if that's terrible, touch your wellness practitioner and end taking it. in simple terms attempt to no longer trouble with regard to the what ifs, because of fact, they'd or won't ensue. i might say that Seroquel is a very good anti psychotic, and probable has worse capacity for ingredient outcomes than Luvox, from what I even have study. yet, i'm no longer a rfile. drugs artwork in any different case on different people. Our innovations chemistry isn't an analogous. one ingredient would artwork for somebody, on an analogous time as yet somebody else would have terrible ingredient outcomes. good success!

What is the difference in Luvox and Luvox CR?
Also is generic Luvox cheaper? I just paid like 139 for CR ...
Asked by Jose Veatch 6 months ago.
CR stands for controlled release. What it does is slowly release your medication over a time period instead of all the medication being absorbed at one time into your system. The medication is slowly released over a longer time period. The generic should be less expensive but some drug companies are dropping their prices as soon as their drug has out lived its patentable life span. You have to shop around to see if generic is less expensive. Luvox (Fluvoxamine) Brand Name & Generic Luvox For As Low As $99.00 For 100 tablets. Answered by Lorretta Cleghorn 6 months ago.

Does luvox cr even do anything?
I used to be taking citalopram 40 mg, which didn't help much at all, then I was switched to luvox cr 100 mg, which so far does absolutely nothing. Has anyone tried this medicine for panic disorder and social anxiety disorder?
Asked by Roni Vogel 6 months ago.
Welcome to the wild, wacky world of psychiatric meds. The bad news is that finding the right med or combination of meds is something of a crap shoot. Shrinks look at the statistics of what seems to work for people with a given symptom(s). Then they try to match the symptoms with what med works for the majority of patients. However, patients often react to the same meds differently, so shrinks often have to try another med or add a 2nd med. 40 mg is an average dose of citalopram (celexa) and might help many people with your symptoms. Both celexa and luvox cr are SSRIs, like prozac and paxil. They usually take about 3 weeks to start to work, but sometimes 6 or even 8 weeks. Since celexa was not helpful, your shrink tried luvox cr. This is chemically similar to celexa. However, 100 mg is a low dose usually given to new patients. The full dose is usually 300 mg. So you have a time lag between the med starting to work, plus you are on a low dose. One suggestion is just to give the luvox a month or two to see if it helps. You can also express your lack of progress with your shrink. He/she might want to try a different med, possibly one that is not an SSRI. I ain't a doctor but I suggest giving xanax a try. However, it can be habit forming if overused. Finally, research shows that psychotherapy plus meds usually works better than meds alone or therapy alone. Also, there are many alternative medicine treatments for anxiety. Also, please make sure your doctor is a psychiatrist, not a regular MD. I wish you the best. Answered by Sean Monti 6 months ago.
Fluvoxamine is an antidepressant in a group of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Fluvoxamine affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause obsessive-compulsive symptoms. Fluvoxamine is used to treat social anxiety disorder (social phobia), or obsessive-compulsive disorders involving recurring thoughts or actions. Fluvoxamine may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide. If anyone has read any of my previous posts you know that I take Luvox and I am now at 150 mg. I want to know if anyone else takes it and if so, what dosage do you take. I am finally starting to notice the good affects at 150mg Answered by Magdalen Keuler 6 months ago.
Can you take Luvox Cr and dramamine together? Going on a cruise?
Asked by Khalilah Srsic 6 months ago.
Several medications may interact negatively with Luvox CR. These interactions may increase your risk for developing serious side effects, such as serotonin syndrome, stomach bleeding, QT prolongation, and slow heart rate. Some of the medications that may cause interactions with Luvox CR include carbamazepine, methadone, aspirin, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. I don't think there is any side effects taking Luvox Cr and dramamine together for short period of time(a cruise). Ask your pharmacist or doctor he/she can give you some assurance, Have a good a cruise! Have fun,life is too short,enjoy it! Take care of yourself! Answered by Barbara Eiche 6 months ago.
Does anyone take Luvox Cr? THoughts..?
Asked by Lane Brody 6 months ago.
Not anymore! I took it for several months for -what else- my OCD thougths that had literally taken over my life, to the point I couldn't take it anymore and I was sooo depressed.... It helped a lot within a couple months, I was less miserable and better able to just smile and push the thougths out of my head. But now come to find out Luvox can worsen neurological symptoms. So if you have Tourette's or severe OCD, watch for exacerbation of symptoms...it might be the drug causing it. My TS got really bad a few months into taking Luvox... now I'm off it to see if it was the cause for my out-of-control tics. It's rare for that to happen, but it can happen... So just watch for that.

I forgot to take my Luvox CR?
I usually take my Luvox CR around 11pm. I forgot to last night and it is now 7:30am. I have a stomachache and a headache. Should I take my medicine now or just wait until 11pm tonight?
Asked by Kylee Kenyon 6 months ago.
Have you got the leaflet that comes with it,should tell you on that.If not wait till the night to be on the safe side. EDIT fOUND IT Luvox CR comes in tablet form and must be swallowed whole. It should be taken once per day in the evening, with or without food. If you forget to take a daily dose, take it when you remember. However if it is close to the time of your next dose, it is better to skip the missed dose altogether. Answered by Lashandra Harkleroad 6 months ago.
Does Luvox CR help migraines?
Or tension headaches
Asked by Onie Mcbrien 6 months ago.
Tension headaches it can help...With Anxiety you worry about so much that you tense so much (even if the 'tensing' is less than noticeable) creating your headaches...luvox is for ocd and for social anxiety disorder so it can potentially help your headaches...it depends...if this medicine helps your anxiety with side effects that do not exist or bother you then yea it can help, i say this because everyones brain is different and once you find your own appropriate anxiety med then this would apply...you might also get headaches for other reasons tho...migraines are different than tension headaches so i am not sure if it could help them or not...
