Re: Withdrawal from LUVOX

Hello all,

I have been on SRI's of various flavors for a very long time. The effects of some were worst then the disease! I have been taking Luvox exclusively for several years.

I reached the goal where the causes of the depression have been elimated. In my case the stressors changed the brain chemistry. I believe you have to make sure you are at that point first before you attempt to eliminate the drugs from your life.

I did try a withdrawal from LUVOX eariler and was unsuccessful because of "Electric Head". I made that attempt in gradual steps. But not gradual enough I guess. I went on a trip into the Montana Rocky Mountains and took no LUVOX with me. Big mistake! "Electric Head!" The feeling was very strong and concerned me. Not fully aware of "withdrawal effects" I thought something had gone seriously wrong. It was two days back to the pills and it was a terrible trip!

I am on my drug trip down again. I had been on 300mg and have over a period of several months dropped to 50mg doing so in - 25mg drops. I am having a little electricity once and a while now, but knowing what it is, I can tune it out. I am planning on staying at 50mg for several weeks or possibly months.

There should be more published about, and more information provided by the doctors on this subject. Withdrawal from the drug without the right information could drive you crazy!

Best to all of you...
:-)
