I was on a dose of 100mg Luvox for 6 years and had a doctor taper me quite aggressively over the course of 2 months. Since then (8 years ago) I have been suffering with extreme depression and anhedonia. I was also a chronic insomniac for that whole period of time.
My current issues seem to be complete lack of libido and morning erections and motivational and anticipatory anhedonia. Since I was suffering so greatly with this for the last 8 years my doctor finally convinced me to go back on Luvox because my symptoms were just so severe at this point.
Being on the Luvox for the past 7 weeks has helped with the depression symptoms and given me my ability to sleep soundly throughout the night. I can now focus quite a bit better and my thoughts aren't as intrusive. I can barely feel anxiety.
At this point I do have occassional morning and erections and when I do they are incredible hard. My main issue seems to be this complete lack of libido and the ability to enjoy things that I once previously did. This situation has almost completely decimated my life and I have made two suicide attempts.
I have had a couple windows since starting the luvox where I have gotten excited or all these feelings come rushing back and it feels like my old self again. I actually WANT things! The longest window of feeling good was 1.5 days while most are extremely brief.
What would your advice people to keep this window open more often?
Thank you for your help and the forum is great.
