Fluvoxamine maleate is an antidepressant of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) class. It is effective for the treatment of depression or depressive states, obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. Studies showed that fluvoxamine maleate works long-term, and retains its therapeutic efficacy for at least one year (M. I. Wilde, G. L. Plosker, P. Benfield. "Fluvoxamine. An updated review of its pharmacology, and therapeutic use in depressive illness". Drugs. 1993, 46 (5): 895–924).
Who should take Fluvoxamine maleate tablets 50 mg from Japan?
Fluvoxamine maleate tablets work by increasing the extracellular level of the neurotransmitter serotonin by limiting its reabsorption into the presynaptic cell. By this, this medication increases the level of serotonin in the synaptic cleft available to bind to the postsynaptic receptor. As the result, Fluvoxamine maleate tablets effectively ameliorate feelings of melancholy and depression in various disorders. Currently, this medication is also prescribed as a part of Internet-addiction therapy for adults and adolescents with social phobia.
