I take no more then 1.5mg xanax a day.. I want to take Luvox but just can't do it! I am getting so upset at the thought its making everything worse. I took Zoloft 50 for 2 weeks and then 100 and then weaned off ! I had every bad reaction one could have..lost 10 pounds and begged to go to hospital 3 times. I want to get better .. What do I do?? I go to a psychiatrist and psychologist .. They both say I need it ..help!!!
You don't think about tomorrow. You take one today, and see how you feel. Then tomorrow you take another one. Always remembering that nothing is forcing you to keep taking them if you don't feel well from them. If you do it day by day it will be easier. Stop obsessing on what happened with other medications, this isn't that medication. Think about how you want to feel and that this may help you.
Luvox is a great medication. It is the only thing that has helped me with my OCD and I have been on it for about 15 or so years. I also take xanax .5 or 1mg a day and as needed. Luvox had helped me greatly with my OCD. I take 100mg one day then 50mg the next and that's how I go about it. Please don't worry about it, it is the only med I have taken with consistency since my diagnosis! If your dr says you need it try it. And if you have any questions please feel free to ask me! I'll do the best I can to help out. I'm here for you! Feel free to add me as a friend on here. Good luck to you!
Thank u all for your help! I have started the Luvox..2 days in..groggy and have headaches.. But doing ok! It's probably mind over matter but I already feel better! My anxiety is lower and when the "obsessive terrible thoughts" try and creep in they seem to lose their power..they melt away before taking hold . I even tried obsessing about something and it didn't stick! Like I said I'm sure alot of this is just me relaxing hoping the medi makes a difference..but I'm looking forward to getting better.. That in itself is a godsend! Thank u all!!
