Hi I took luvox and I ca say it was not the drug for me. It did not take long for it to work. Everybody is different and what happened to me may not happen to you. But it made me numb. In the sense that I did not care about anything. You could have told me my house burnt down and really could have cared less. It scared me because I wanted to feel things like normal people but not obsess or have anxiety all the time over like say a burnt piece of toast like I did before the luvox. But not haveing any feelings about anything was not for me. So I guess my advice is give it a good try. You may have no side effects and I hope for you that is the case and that you start feeling like you want to feel I hope this may be helpful in as much as you can be ware if the feeling of being numb to things you should care about is not how this medication should work. Good Luck and God bless.

thank you everyone... I tried zolfot first it did not work for me I felt the same if not worse... I'm just having a huge patience issue with finding the right medicine... I've been depressed for so long I jsut want to feel better already! and sadly I would love to feel numb it beats being depressed but I'm sure I'd get sick of it too

i took luvox last 10 years for my fibromyalgia. It helped to control my mood swings. It would start effect your mood after 2-3 weeks not one day. Wait at least 2weeks and call your doctor if really bad. My case, it was up and down but could control my sickness! Good Luck

Yes... this can result for some patients.
The body realizes (so to speak) "Hey! My serotonin levels have been elevated! I better bring them... down. Remember, the body, at all times is proactively resolving for homeostasis... so what you are experiencing should be transient
