    Luvox Takers - what time of day?

    Hi all - I've just been prescribed Luvox for obsessive thoughts. My thoughts keep me up all night long. My dr. recommended taking the Luvox at night b/c it has a sedating effect and should help me sleep. Unfortunately, this isn't the case - it doesn't help me sleep at all so I end up taking a Lunesta.

    Does anyone take it in the am? I am very hopeful the Luvox will work for me (it seems to be already) but I need my sleep and I really was hoping not to need Lunesta and Luvox.

    Re: Luvox Takers - what time of day?

    I take luvox in morning, it causes the most horrendous insomnia because of its anxiety boosting effect, stress . And also, it causes massive diahreah and frequent urination.

    did you have diahreah on it? or did you urinate on it?? alot? did you lose weight?

    i hate this weight loss, cuz its not healthy.

    I just took it this a.m. for the first time - I slept much better last night. I don't have diarrhea but I do urinate more. I haven't weighed myself recently but any weight loss will be fine with me.
