Hi there, I hope I can offer you some encouraging words. I suffer from anxiety/depression and apparantly OCD as well. One of my biggest fears is taking medication and their side effects. It took my doc a month to get me to take my original meds I was on and almost that long to start the Luvox. I started off at 50 mg a night ( been on them now for 9 days ) then went up to 100 mg last night. I have had a few minor side effects eg headaches, weird aches and pains and some minor nausea. I hate side effects, but have decided to listen to my doctor. These are all side effects that do pass normally within in a few weeks and if it means I will start to feel half normal again then I can cope with these temporary things. I do feel for you especially seeings that one of your anxieties is your appearance
I know its so so hard not to worry, but honestly you have to try. My doctor almost begged me to give this medication a chance and I have decided to do just that ! I think your worry is probably causing the diaereah etc more than the Luvox itself. Worry and anxiety can also cause all of the symptoms you seem to have. Also if you are eating heaps more than normal that too could be causing the frequent urination and diareah... Makes sense right ????
