Luvox is one of the taboo SSRI's. It got a social anxiety approval in 2008 for its extended release formula. I don't think I've heard too much success stories with it. It's also sedating like Paroxetine.

The only good thing is less sexual side effects and it's weight neutral.. It's like a Prozac derivative, it looks a bit similar on the chemical structure but the complete opposite in some ways, the half life is very short..

Anyway, doctors can be real asholes sometimes and abruptly take people off Benzos. If this one isn't willing to prescribe more if its helping then I suggest you find a different one.

Fluoxetine 20mg 2009-2011, (Paroxetine 20mg 2012-2014) Effexor XR short time. Viibryd 2014-2015, Back on Paxil CR 25mg, Jan-July 2015.

Suboxone 2mg Effexor XR 150mg early 2016. Now 2016-2017: Paxil 20mg, Ativan, Lyrica, Adderall, Ambien CR.
