Yes it is: Luvox (fluvoxamine) is still being prescribed in the U.S. Its primary indications are for obsessive compulsive disorder and social anxiety disorder, although it is also used off-label for other anxiety and depressive disorders. Recommend discussion with doctor regarding your particular symptoms to determine the most appropriate medication options for you. Hope this is useful information.
