Fluvoxamine is a type of SSRI anti-depressant, sold under various brand names including Faverin® and Luvox®.
It is used to treat obsessive compulsive disorder, as well as other conditions such as depression, obesity, bulimia, schizophrenia, and panic disorder.
Fluvoxamine is sometimes used to treat people with autism who have mental health problems. It may also be used to treat people with ASD who have other problems, such as repetitive behaviours or social deficits.
We are currently reviewing the research evidence on the use of fluvoxamine for people with autism. We have not yet formed an opinion on fluvoxamine but we do have an opinion on Anti-Depressants as a whole.
