Re: Does anyone else take Luvox????
Hey guys, and Miss Muse especially: you started on 100 mg of Luvox? That's why you feel ill, but no worries. Your body will likely get used to it. The billions of times I've been on it, I've started at 50. This last time (several months ago) I started on 25 mg, b/c that's the newest smallest dose. I saw my dr. yesterday and I said I wanted to move up (I've been on 50 mg for a while) and she said, "hm, 75 is a lot, but tell me what's going on." I've never been on the luvox CR, just the generic luvox. I'm not sure how that changes side effects, but it sounds the same.
So basically, my knowledge is that anything over 300 mg is absurd (unsafe and I don't even think it exists), and all doctors will tell you different things plus their experience with other patients will most certainly be factored in. I think it's whatever works for you. the nausea was BAD when I was on this drug as a teenager though it did go away slowly. Now, it's completely nonexistent. This time around, instead of nausea it has just made me super hungry (for carbs). *shrugs* and that's very interesting as well if you do some research. the craving for carbs is heightened b/c of the serotonin we didn't originally have enough of, and all this fascinating stuff. who knows if those sources were credible haha.
One question I do have for you all: do you take your luvox at night? I'm noticing it's tougher to fall asleep even though I run several miles a day and am very active. I've read that caffeine is more potent in the bodies of those who take luvox. I wonder if there's any truth to that?
over all, this drug has seriously saved my *** more times than I can count.
