Your primary care physician may start you on a low dose of fluvoxamine maleate and gradually increase your dose, not more than once a week, depending on how well the prescription works for you and the side effects you experience.
Fluvoxamine may take a while or maybe a long time to fully benefit you. Regardless of how well you feel, keep taking fluvoxamine. Do everything you can to avoid stopping fluvoxamine 100 mg without first consulting your primary care physician.
If you suddenly stop taking fluvoxamine, you may experience withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, fomentation, wooziness, excessive concern, disquiet, disarray, migraine, sluggishness, temperament changes, difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or torment, copying, deadness, shivering, or 'electric shock' sensations.
