> New RX from pdoc today was up luvox as potentiates effects of the benzos so hopefully less benzos. Going down anyway. Phillipa just home.
You're on Luvox which passes through 3A4 and Valium as I recall which was my former antidepressant and combination, so, yes, Luvox is a theoretical inhibitor (keeps other relevant drugs longer in the system) at CYP 3A4. Not all benzodiazepines pass through this cytochrome -- Xanax would be stronger than Valium potentiation.
