    easy child was on it for about 5 weeks over the summer for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). She had to be taken off from it because it made her hyper and impulsive. It did take the edge off from her Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

    Hopefully, it will work for your son. I have heard good things about it for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) anyway.

    My son has been on this for almost 2 1/2 years. It is a souped up prozac, from what the pharmacist told us years ago. It works well for him in combo with the discipline of living with his grandparents.

    Is he on any other medication? Luvox, an antidepressant, is not a bipolar medication. Like all antidepressants, it should be used to treat bipolar only when a first line mood stabilizer is in place -- lithium, Lamictal, Depakote, Tegretol/Trileptal -- and then it should be done cautiously.
