Were you looking for information on Fluvoxamine? Fluvoximine is a common misspelling of fluvoxamine.
Fluvoxamine is a prescription drug used to treat adults, teens, and children who have obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The drug works by allowing a certain chemical (serotonin) to stay in the brain for a longer period of time. This, in turn, helps alleviate OCD symptoms. Fluvoxamine comes in tablet form and is typically taken once or twice a day. The dosage you are prescribed will depend on several factors, such as your age, existing medical conditions you have, and other medications you may be taking.
