Hi Kim, read my forum topic "OCD and skin picking" from last week. Same thing has happened to me on Luvox CR. Skin picking wasn't even that big of a problem until the medication started screwing up my sleep cycle and making me extremely fidgety. But I'm on Luvox for severe OCD, I am definitely not better yet, but I'm getting there slowly (I've been on it since last April, but the OCD has been severe for years) and will continue the meds in spite of side effects. Read my story, it's a bit different from you, but the medication definitely affects my skin picking, too.
