I agree with Honore, although I'll go farther -- if your old pdoc was adequate to your needs, you'd never have gone to another pdoc. You've started treatment with someone new, you felt good about the treatment, and one thing happens that might not be what it sounds like to you right now, and you're jumping ship. I know that anxiety makes that sort of leap easy, especially because it's hard to keep two options in mind at once -- black and white thinking -- but you've got to give any treatment a chance if you want it to work.
Phillipa, did you call the new pdoc to ask about this? There could have been a miscommunication in there, something that you're not aware of right now, that explains all this. It may be that your new pdoc didn't "betray" you at all. Why not hold off on making any changes until you've had a chance to check in with him?
And after going through the withdrawal from Luvox, why not stay off it until you can find something that works better for you? Isn't that the plan? Or at least to get a baseline of where you are without meds?
I know if something like that happened to me, while I was experiencing heightened anxiety, I would be tempted to jump back to what the pdoc I felt betrayed by had taken me off, as a way to "show him," or "get back at him." But it doesn't do anything to him, it only shoots me in the foot. Please ask yourself if you're doing something like this, before you jump back onto Luvox. Make sure what you're doing is in your best interest, and not something you'll regret in a week.
