I know I have read that Luvox does not increase the central nervous system side effects when mixed with alcohol. Is it truly safe to have a few drinks maybe once a week while taking this? Serotonin syndrome is what scares me.
Luvox and alcohol...occasional use?

Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: Alcohol (contained in alcoholic beverages) (ethanol), Luvox (fluvoxamine)
Using fluvoxaMINE together with ethanol may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience impairment in thinking, judgment, and motor coordination. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with fluvoxaMINE. Do not use more than the recommended dose of fluvoxaMINE, and avoid driving, operating machinery, or engaging in potentially hazardous activities requiring mental alertness and motor coordination until you know how the medication affects you. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
Best regards, masso
