Using Klonopin with Luvox (fluvoxamine) may increase the effects of Klonopin. See your Psychiatrist if you experience extreme drowsiness, confusion, muscle weakness, loss of balance or coordination, feeling light-headed, or fainting. Discuss need for both medications,; benefits, side effects and interactions of Klonopin and Luvox (fluvoxamine), decreasing the dose; and Therapy for stresses, and to develop coping skills,
