Antidepressant medications such as Luvox have reportedly caused an increase in suicidal thoughts or behavior in some children, teens, or young adults under 24. Ask your doctor about the risks associated with this drug and if they are outweighed by the benefits you may experience.
Talk to your doctor before you take Luvox if you have ever had seizures, blood clotting issues, or problems with your liver, adrenal glands, kidney, or heart. Let your doctor know if you take or have taken street drugs, or if you use alcohol frequently; these substances may interfere with this medication. You should also mention any serious reactions you may have had to other similar medications.
Luvox may interact with other medications or supplements, including monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen, other antidepressants, migraine medications, antihistamines, antacids, anticoagulants, anxiolytics, herbal supplements, sleeping pills, antipsychotics, blood pressure medications, and more.
Serotonin syndrome, a potentially life-threatening condition, may develop if another SSRI is taken along with Luvox.
