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!
