I am in the early stages of getting on Luvox for OCD. I've been at just 25 mg for about three weeks. I was doing good but then starting having as much trouble as ever after a trigger event. I'm living in a constant state of panic/anxiety as well. I had relief with Prozac before but stopped it while pregnant and had trouble getting back on it after delivery. I'm trying Luvox now. I know what relief feels like and I'm so hoping to achieve it again with Luvox. I'm getting discouraged because I'm almost 8 months postpartum now and still struggling. Any feedback? What dose did you see relief from on Luvox? I recognize that I'm at a very low dose at the moment.
I hope you are feeling better.
In the past Luvox worked for me at 50- 100mg, but when I had a very bad breakdown triggered by an event in my life (I felt major depression, Horrible Obsessive thoughts) my Dc. put me on 300mg. It has been a year and I had improved tremendously. Depression went away and thoughts are under control. I do have small episodes but I am able to manage. I have to take the 300mg in the morning or early afternoon otherwise I have trouble sleeping. I also take klonopin as needed, most for sleep and ritalin to help me focus at work, all in small doses. Most of the people have no idea I am taking all this meds, I keep a low profile and only talk about it with family. Anyway, for me Luvox is good; you may need to increase your dose and give it some time to see if works for you. Never give up. Good luck.
