Has anyone tried Fluvoxamine (Luvox)? Here's why I ask. According to an article at cfids.org, Japanese researchers "used the SSRI fluvoxamine maleate to treat 39 patients with CFS, 11 of them withdrew from the treatment within two weeks because of side effects from the medication. The remaining 28 patients were given the SSRI for more than two months. Two of these patients were cured of CFS after the treatment, and eight of them recovered enough to return to work."
