Fluvoxamine Withdrawal and Tapering Help

Fluvoxamine has been associated with more side-effects and the highest discontinuation rates among SSRIs (nearly 86%). Abruptly stopping or rapid withdrawal of Fluvoxamine is not recommended. Our NonProfit has been helping people safely withdraw for over 14 Years. Contact the Prescription Drug Experts for help!

Fluvoxamine is a potent Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) with approximately 100-fold attraction to the serotonin transporter over norepinephrine. This is the highest affinity for the Serotonin receptor of any SSRI on the market.

Many drugs and natural items can interact with Fluvoxamine including St. Johns Wort, other antidepressants, MAO Inhibitors, Tumeric, and sedatives, to name a few.

Fluvoxamine has a half-life of approximately 15 hours, which is the shortest of all SSRIs. This may contribute to the Discontinuation Syndrome, or withdrawals. Several key factors that influence withdrawals include the length of time on Fluvoxamine, dosage, additional medications or health challenges.  Contact Us if you need help tapering off of Fluvoxamine or have questions.
