Suicide and Luvox CR: Warning Signs

What to Do If You Think There Is a Suicide Risk

Everyone who takes an antidepressant should be monitored carefully when the antidepressant is first started, as well as when the dose is increased -- even if the antidepressant is not being used to treat depression. You should be watchful for any signs of suicidal thoughts and behavior. Contact your healthcare provider right away if you or your child or loved one has any of the following:
 
  • Thoughts about death or committing suicide
  • Suicide attempts
  • Depression or anxiety that is new or worse
  • Agitation, restlessness, or panic attacks
  • Trouble sleeping (insomnia)
  • Irritability that is new or worse
  • Aggressive, angry, or violent behavior
  • Acting on dangerous impulses
  • An unusual increase in talking or activity
  • Other strange changes in mood or behavior.
     
In addition, contact your healthcare provider if you notice any other symptoms that concern you. Do not stop taking an antidepressant without first talking to your healthcare provider. Stopping an antidepressant suddenly may cause other potentially dangerous reactions, including worsening depression.
 
Also, be sure to talk with your healthcare provider about the risks and benefits of Luvox CR uses, especially in children, adolescents, and young adults. Your healthcare provider can discuss all the available OCD and social anxiety disorder treatment options with you.
