    Luvox history and info

    Luvox 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 Luvox including St. Johns Wort, other antidepressants, MAO Inhibitors, Turmeric, and sedatives, to name a few.

    Luvox 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 Luvox, dosage, additional medications or health challenges.

    Luvox (Fluvoxamine) was developed by Kali-Duphar, a division of Solvay Pharmaceuticals, Belgium, and is now Abbott Laboratories. Luvox was introduced into Switzerland and West Germany in 1983 and then approved by the FDA in December 1994. Luvox was the first SSRI to be registered by the FDA in 1997 for obsessive- compulsive disorder in children. By late 1995 more than ten million patients were treated with Luvox.  In 1999 Luvox was approved for the treatment of depression.

    Serotonin is a hormone and neurotransmitter found in the human brain, blood platelets, pineal gland and the central nervous system, but over 90% of our Serotonin is found in the digestive tract where it is used to regulate intestinal movements.

    Serotonin affects many physiologic properties, including inhibiting gastric secretion, stimulation of smooth muscles and as a vasoconstrictor. It is also an important neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, involved in pain transmission and perception, influencing behavior, tiredness, sleep, mood and mental fatigue. Serotonin also directly influences both moral judgment and behavior.  The widespread function of Serotonin helps to explain why the side effects and withdrawals from Luvox have a profound effect on multiple systems of the body.

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

    At Point of Return we assess each client’s situation individual, taking into account any potential interactions between medications with food, herbs, vitamins and over-the-counter items. Our goal is to minimize your Luvox withdrawal symptoms with specific all-natural nutraceuticals but we implement no herbs due to the interaction risk. People taper at a slow rate of withdrawal that is right for their situation and we guide you each step of the way.
