Hello. I believe I can be of help to you with this issue. I'm assuming that when you say that your 'system becomes immune' you are actually saying the medication has stopped working (?). If so:

Yes, it is very, very common for SSRI antidepressants such as Lovan to gradually stop working. Patients typically work with their physician to adjust the dose upward, or typically, they have to find another drug in the same 'family' that works. This of course, is pretty much a random 'experiment' because there is no way of predicting beforehand what will work and what will not.
