Sorry to hear you're feeling so badly. I, too, had to withdraw from what I call the worst drug I ever took-Luvox. I hope Luvox helped someone on this earth but surely not me or you. My pdoc told me to just quit taking it like that. No instructions. I suffered for a few days and I had been on about 250 mg. a day. That drug made me hallucinate and that is NOT normal for me. Made me more nervous than a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs! Thought I'd add that for humor! I tried St. John's Wort and made ice tea out of it. Wasn't bad but along with my other drugs I was groggy. By the way, Luvox is not an addicting drug. Best wishes that you will feel better. Have you tried hot baths and chamomile tea? That's relaxing. I don't know about the other herbal drugs you mentioned. They are known as drugs, too, by pharmacists. They are made up of chemicals, too, even if they are called natural. If you buy any of that stuff at the drugstore the pharmacist often will give you advice on it if you ask. They are usually real nice, too. Best wishes that you feel better soon!!

> Hey everyone,
> I am still having problems with withdrawing from this *@#*#)@* Luvox!! :) I am down to a 50mg pill every Monday, Thursday, and Saturday. I cannot put any more days in between doses as I will become nauseous again and have that funny "brain/dizzy" thing again. I wonder if I will ever get off this horrible drug. Curiously, and a lot of you will say "I told you so, Athena", lol, my fiance mentioned that I have been more moody lately, and anxious. But I am trying to stick to my goal of getting my brain off this addicting drug and deal with my issues/problems/mental health in more naturalistic ways. I have taken up meditation & yoga, and I don't think I've ever read so many books in my life. (note: I'm currently devouring the "Road Less Traveled" by Scott Peck, MD..and it has made me cry more than might wanna flip thru it!)
> Also, I wanted to ask, have any of you tried St. John's Wort, or Sam-e, or even GABA? If so, I'd like to hear your experiences.
> In response to one of you guys' earlier post, if meds truly truly make you feel more normal, and not just "numb", then by all means be happy! But meds are not for me, been there done that.
> Still wallowing in withdrawals,
