Maybe it's both: thyroid AND luvox withdrawal. Personally, I wouldn't stop an SSRI cold Turkey. Maybe you could switch to a comparable dose of Prozac and then taper. It just seems that if you've been on Luvox for years and then stop cold turkey, that that could cause a problem, espcially since luvox has such the shortest half-life of all the SSRI's (16 hours)--even shorter than Paxil. Good Luck Phillipa. Saturn.
