Can cause insomnia : Fluvoxamine is a sri--a category of anti-depressants that has many members including Prozac (fluoxetine) which was the first one. It is not prescribed for insomnia so you may want to talk to your doctor to get some clarity about what he/she is diagnosing you with. Also it interacts with many medications including caffeine which is one reason that it is not prescribed as often as the other members of the sris.
