4 doctors weighed in:

I take 300mg lamictal, 900mg lithium, 50mg Luvox (fluvoxamine) and 1 mg klonopin every day. Is there something odd about this? PMHNP said Luvox (fluvoxamine) n lithium don't mix

3 doctors agree

In brief: Drug interaction

Lithium and Luvox (fluvoxamine) together can increase the chances of serotonin syndrome( and NMS).
..which are rare but dangerous conditions. Your healthcare professional should monitor you regularly. Also lithium with klonopin can increase sedation ( tiredness), so you should be careful driving , operating machinery etc
