Hi and welcome.

Insomnia that is lack of sleep is one of the side effects of luvox but at the same time it is the medication for depression and anxiety. I would suggest you to discuss this with prescribing doctor for dose adjustment for best results.

Does lexapro have that same effect?
Mental Health Professional: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Yes, unfortunately all of the antidepressants have this side effect so do lexapro.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
