Latuda is the best thing to take while pregnant!!!!!
No, Latuda is NOT recommended for pregnant women. It has not been determined yet whether or not it can affect a developing fetus.

Hi, I'm so excited for you and your family!! I am also on Latuda and have had a great pregnancy so far, it sounds like your pregnancy was great too and I have another question for you, I noticed on my prescription bottle yesterday that it said Latuda could cause the baby severe withdrawals, did you have an issue with this? I would love to hear from you, Thank you in advance!

provigil vs. adderall for ADD and bipolar
Provigil is long term sustaining so is Nuvigil. Nuvigil is designed with the purpose to increase short term, long term memory and increase awareness and increase concentration.
