My doc has me on 300 mg Luvox CR, but my insurance doesn't cover it so she gives me samples. Problem is, if I go to visit her sometimes she doesn't have any left. I've never run out before, but just in case I made her give me a script for plain old generic fluvoxamine (and immediate-release is only available as a generic). On this site I've seen others who claim IM is better. To tell the truth, I tried the IR one day and it knocked me on my ass.

So, if anyone has any experience either way, which is better? Should I just take the IR because my body will get used to the CR and the IR won't work as well later on? I hope someone can make some sense of what I'm asking!! :mad:
