How Long Does Fluvoxamine (Luvox) Stay In Your System?
The half-life of fluvoxamine is very short compared to other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Because of the short half-life, it takes anywhere from 36 to 60 hours before Luvox is completely out of your system, which is the fastest amongst SSRIs. While this is a quick turnaround, Luvox usually yields some harsh withdrawals, depending on dosage amount and how long you have been actively using the drug. These symptoms, though severe, are manageable with the right kind of recovery program.
