Luvox side effects and special warnings when pregnant or breast-feeding:

 

In addition to the previously mentioned Luvox side effects, you should always be especially cautious when pregnant as the effects of this medication have not been adequately studied during pregnancy. If you're currently pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant in the near future you should consult your physician immediately. This medication passes into breast milk and can possibly cause serious reactions to your nursing baby. If this medication is absolutely essential to your mental health, your doctor may ask you to discontinue breast-feeding until you have completed your treatment with Luvox.

 

The previously listed Luvox side effects while extensive are not completely comprehensive in that there may always be possible unmentioned side effects which may occur. Always report any Luvox side effects immediately to your doctor.
