Specializes in Psychiatry

Drug interaction: Lithium and Luvox (fluvoxamine) together can increase the chances of serotonin syndrome( and NMS)...which are rare but dangerous conditions. Your healthcare professional should monitor you regularly. Also lithium with klonopin can increase sedation ( tiredness), so you should be careful driving , operating machinery etc
