    I have been on Luvox CR for 10 years. I was taking 150 mg. twice a day. I decided to try natural supplements and in 3 months I couldn't handle the obsessive thoughts at all. Slowly went up to the 300mg. a day and that didn't work. I had to go up to 400 mg. for 10 months, and am working down toward 300 mg. a day again. It works fantastic for OCD thoughts, but am tired all the time. Th ... Show Full Comment

    i have ocd & sad ; on luvox cr for 3 years and it has saved my life. i take it in the am which i find to be 3 or 4 times more effective than pm dose. the new generic from par pharma is at less effective (imo) - recommend jazz pharma only. do not expect to change from jazz to par without consequences.

    Completely annihilated my obsessive thoughts and compulsive behavior within a week. It also dissolved my social anxiety to the point that I can enjoy myself in social situations, something I would never have believed possible. Initial few weeks of drowsiness actually proved beneficial, as it combatted my anxiety-inspired insomnia. I'm extremely grateful to have encountered this medication.

The beginnig was the usual, drowsiness,lack of energy but that was gone after a few weeks. This medicatio ... Show Full Comment
