In brief: Yes it can be

Faverin = fluvoxamine, an antidepressant which also has significant anti-anxiety attributes.
Like most ssri's, it may cause GI side effects such as nausea and diarrhea. These may dissipate in the first weeks of use. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20238342 and http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmed/18568110.
