Using Luvox regularly changes how one’s mind and body functions. Those taking Luvox must carefully follow the instructions given to them by their healthcare provider; simply missing a daily dose can cause devastating complications with long-term recovery. Since Luvox heavily influences neurotransmitters, it’s easy for those who are actively using it to become physically dependent on it. Clinical studies have shown that antidepressants come with a higher risk of suicidal thoughts and actions.
Some patients stop using Luvox abruptly because they believe they are well enough to do so. This sudden stop results in some minor withdrawal symptoms similar to the flu (e.g., fatigue, unable to concentrate, body aches and pains), as well as irritability, vomiting, nightmares, and tingling/shocking sensations in the skin. Since Luvox has a shorter half-life compared to other antidepressants, around 13.5 hours for younger subjects and 26 for elders, the withdrawal symptoms can be severe. In severe cases, Luvox withdrawal can lead to depersonalization (a state in which a person’s thoughts or feelings seem unreal), insomnia, and worsening depression or panic attacks.
Those diagnosed with depression may begin showing signs of mania, which are high self-esteem, a decreased need for sleep, irritable mood, racing thoughts and troublesome impulsive behaviors. It’s important to stay in touch with a healthcare provider while taking Luvox, especially when symptoms occur.
