Re: Luvox?

I've been taking Dexedrine and Luvox for several years.

Luvox (fluvoxamine) is indeed an SSRI. In the US it is only licensed for OCD, but is used widely in Europe as an antidepressant. (Supposedly, it predates Prozac in Europe.) I think the US licensing issue has something to do not seeing it mentioned here more. (Likewise the Eric Harris connection, which is more 'Prozac Rage' type nonsense. Gee, Harris drank water, maybe we should blame that.)

Amphetamine should potentiate the effects of Luvox. Yet that seems to vary by individual.

I agree with Cindy about the antiorgasmic effect of Luvox -- only clomipramine seemed worse to me. And she's right that it is dose related. Because of this I've started taking pindilol with a smaller dose of Luvox. I know there's some effect but its hard to describe because its so gradual. I'd say in some ways, it buffers you from the emotional 'descents' you otherwise experience.
