Yes: luvox, (fluvoxamine) an SSRI, can help effectively treat depression. In patients with moderate to severe depression SSRIs are significantly more helpful than placebo. They may not be more helpful than placebo + supportive tx in only mild depression. Talk with your doctor about whether luvov, or an SSRI, would be helpful in treating your depression.review ur specific risk/benefit/side effect profile w/ ur doc :)
