Side Effects of Fluvoxamine: Summary

It is possible that you may experience some or none of the fluvoxamine side effects explained above. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the medicine. Also let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right" during treatment with fluvoxamine. While it may not be a side effect of fluvoxamine, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
