I've heard Luvox is useless for SA, it's more for OCD.

The one major thing you have to remember...is that the man next to you is your brother, and you'd damn well better treat each other that way because if you don't, then we blow the whole thing, but we've got it right there.

My brother is on this stuff. He suffers from severe autism. It works pretty good for him. Maybe I'll give it a shot. If it works for OCD, I think it also has a good effect on social anxiety, because I think this two things share similar traits. You know, compulsive thinking and stuff. At least I have been a big ruminator my whole life.

Yes I agree with what you said social anxiety and OCD are pretty similar and fluvoxamine was good in studies for both disorders!
Good luck and keep us updated 😍
