General Info on Anti-Depressant Side Effects

I see a lot of posts of concerns of side effects of anti-depressant medications. Personally, I think all side effects suck and am thinking of getting off meds. I have OCD and have tried 4-5 SSRI/ SSRNIs over 20 years (one at a time). One med I took, Luvox, I didn't take for a week (I'm THAT lazy) and started being stuck in side effects. Very very bad anxiety and restless arms/legs that made me pace and go for walks to distract me. Couldn't sleep or sit still due to the feeling. Even cried. Went to emergency room a couple times for shakiness bothering me so bad. Tried lowering Luvox. Tried upping it. Couldn't get back to where symptoms went away. What I discovered through the Luvox experience is don't lower dose and gradually go back to dose you were supposed to be on...

luvox what dose are you on please help

How long did it take to work and how long are you on it for what are you taking it for please help ## Please respond someone ## Hi Theresa, According to an article I found by the College of Psychiatric and Neurologic Pharmacists, patients taking Luvox (fluvoxamine) may begin to see signs of improvement in appetite, energy, and sleep, within the first 1-2 weeks of use. It goes on to state that symptoms of depression may require up to 6-8 weeks before noticing a full improvement. So from what I understand, it really depends on the severity of each case. Apparently the dose can also range anywhere from 50mg all the way up to 300mg. But only you & your doctor can effectively determine what amount is right for you. I hope this info helps!
