what would be a good adjunct to 250 cr luvox used successfully for ocd to help with depression...slight mood disorder and anxiety?

Luvox CR: You doctor can consider first maximizing dose of Luvox. Adding in a medication like Buspar may help to reduce anxiety levels. If mood disorder is only slight, it may not make sense to add in a mood stabilizer or an atypical antipsychotic.
