Welcome to Just answer !
Well yes you are right that Valdoxan should not be mixed with fluvoxamine , the reason being fluvoxamine slows down the metabolism ( break down ) of valdoxan thereby resulting in dangerously increased levels in the blood which can lead to side effects such as headache, dizziness ,sleepiness , insomnia ,migraine ,nausea, diarrhea ,increases in anxiety.
So if fluvoxamine is working well for your condition then you shall continue on it and choose an alternative for valdoxan such as ambien ( zolpidem ) at dose 5-10 mg at bedtime. This shall take care of your sleep problem.
I hope this helps .
Wish you all the best.
