> > I'm fairly new to the board, so I apologize beforehand for diving into a subject that may have already been discussed to death. I have been on Prozac for several years with fairly good success. On my last vist to my psych. he gave me a month's worth of Paxil samples and told me to wean off the Prozac and start on them. I have read just a few posts and it doesn't sound very promising; in fact, some of them were downright scary. Would just like some feedback before I start on a new drug.

I've been on 40mg of Prozac daily for a few years, was on 60mg before that. I don't recall having any breakthrough ocd symptoms on that higher dose, now that you mention it. And what is Luvox? Another SSRI? I've never heard of it. Guess I've been on my regimen so long all the new advances have passed me by. I'll discuss the higher dose of Prozac with my pdoc and appreciate anything you can tell me about Luvox. We're all searching for that perfect combo, aren't we? Thanks a lot for the info! Deb.
