Re: Withdrawal from LUVOX

In reply to Withdrawal from LUVOX, posted by Dave@MT on February 14, 2001, at 18:20:18

I have been on Luvox now for 3 years at nearly consistently the 300mg dose for OC disorder/hypochondriasis and I guess a little for the depression associated with it.

Electric head- hmmmmm... Not the clinical term I was looking for, but a perfect description- a nagging shot of energy through my innards and brain everytime I focus, change direction, change speed, or otherwise move from a fixed point. It makes me wish I had a superpower to accomany it- perhaps electricity to flow from my fingertips, or something else, maybe...

It's getting hard to deal with the withdrawal effects, folks. Luvox has been my saving grace, but for 3 years now, it's also kept me drug-bound. With the o.k. from my doctor, I'm going off it (the meds, not my mind), but she had no clear answer as to "weaning" off of the drug. So, I tried my own way. Even now, after weaning over a month and now down to a mere 75 mg, this jolt I get for moving is making me wish I stayed on the drug.

I need some encouraging words to stick it out, and not chicken back into my 300 mg dose. I'm not feeling depression or any ritualistic behavior coming on, I just wish these mental whirls would blasted go away.

Help me, please.
