Re: Luvox/Anafranil question

Actually, augmenting the Anafranil with viagra would probably be the better choice than switching to Luvox from the standpoint of the sexual dysfunction, especially if the problem is impotence. Luvox is a fine drug, but to switch, your husband would have to be off the Anafranil for at least 2 weeks before starting the Luvox and then would have to build up the dose to see if it will work. If it doesn't, switching back to Anafranil doesn't take so long but that whole process can be very disconcerting since the OCD symptoms are likely to return while waiting for a response from the Luvox and then having wait again on the Anafranil to kick back in if the Luvox doesn't work. If your husband is unhappy with the situation, he should be at least given the opportunity to see if there is something with fewer side effects that would work for him. What was the doctor's thought about the Viagra?
