Luvox® (fluvoxamine maleate) and other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are known to cause withdrawal symptoms in people who quickly stop taking their medicine.
Luvox withdrawal symptoms can include but are not limited to:
- A burning or tingling sensation
In most people, these Luvox withdrawal symptoms improve with time, without the need for any treatment.
If you are going to be taken off of Luvox, your healthcare provider may wean you off slowly to minimize the chances of a withdrawal. If withdrawal symptoms do occur, your healthcare provider may return you to your previous Luvox dosage and then wean you off the medication even more slowly.
