If you can tolerate it, I would try going down 50mg per week, if not try 25mg per week. It all depends on how it effects you.

By the way I just started Luvox yesterday 5/29 and have several questions. I have tried several SSRI's over the past several years and had success with only a couple, Prozac and Paxil. The only reason I stopped Prozac is because it tends to build up in ones body because of the long half life and stops working, but didn't cause me sexual problems. Paxil was the best for my anxiety and everything else but killed not only my libido but also erectile dysfuntion (at only 20mg) so for obvious reasons stopped it.

My main problems are anxiety and minor obsessive issues and I've never tried Luvox simply because doctors don't follow it and they seem to push whatever the drug reps are handing out. My doctor prescribed Luvox (fluvoxamine) to me but didn't have much to say about it.

So, I've read a lot of positive for this med for anxiety etc. and was wondering if you had any positive experiences to share and if it caused you very much sexual dysfuntion or what other side effects you may have experienced. I am starting at 50mg and will probably only go up to 100mg nightly because I've luckily been able to get by with minimum doses.

Any positive feedback and drawbacks if any for this med would be appreciated because it's not discussed to much here.
