In brief: 10 to 14 days
Luvox (fluvoxamine) typically shows its effects on your mood and/or obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors in 2 weeks.
Many patients show improvement earlier. If you are too impatient, some doctors raise the dose too fast and too high. The lowest effective dose has less side effects than an artificially high dose. The high dose side effects may lead to another medication prescribed.
