Is luvox great for OCD? Are the side effects worse than zoloft (sertraline) ? Im on zoloft (sertraline) now but ocd hasn't improved while anxiety has. Will luvox be better?

In brief: Luvox (fluvoxamine)

If you can tolerate Luvox, (fluvoxamine) it might be better option for OCD.
Review with your doctor. Also, for the OCD, talk to a Therapist about Cognitive Behavior Therapy to boost response to medications.
