I am bipolar, have ptsd, ectrem social anxiety and am moderately agorophic. I was given the 3 week sample pack and not sure if I want to stay on it. The nightmares are aweful. Things from my past which I thought I had been dealing with and learning to deal with are haunting me every night. I feel like I am traumatized again each night I have them. I wake in the middle of the night sobbing. I really don't think it is worth It, but will see what pdoc says today.

Can't believe I'm saying this but I don't think I need Latuda. I believe it was the best thing and helped me open my eyes to finding out my real problems and now that I have this information, I wish to seek counseling to take it head on. I'm afraid my newly befriended psychiatrist isn't going to say I should be off of it, though I have only been on for a month and this is the first time taking medication like this.
I'm just done with the pill scene. I know I shouldn't go cold turkey because of the many risks but has anyone been weaned off Latuda from 60mg to nothing and what would you say is the worst side effect? I know I forgot to take it once and felt like I was going mad. Thanks

nauseas, pain in stomach, light headed. Developed cystic acne after taking the first few days. Was also on 150 mg of lithium but stopped and still continued with acne. Yikes! Painful!

Can't get drunk
I was on haldol. Invega, now I'm on Latuda and no matter how much I drink I never get drunk I get hungover after drinking but I never feel happy like I did while drinking before did this medication cause this or what is going on

I wondered if that happened to anyone else. I miss it. It is also scary, because how do you know when to stop? Then again, not even enjoying it much now. I made 3 drinks last about 3 hours the other night and then just switched to iced tea. Still the first med that ever worked for me after years. I hope it is also working well for you.

My 25 year old is given too many antiPsychotic drugs :-(
BEHAVIOURAL HEALTH DOCTOR GAVE MY DAUGHTER Risperidal and Celexa that lasted 45days. She had to be admitted again at A different hospital... Instead of lessening the dose of these medications, this new Doctor at Behavioral Health Doctor just switched Her meds to Abilify 20mg and Prozac 10mg. Told me she is talking to herself and pacing all the time. Two weeks later this Doctor got rid of Abify and give her Latuda 160mg and Inderal 10mg 3Xaday with the Prozac 10mg also!!! Also Multi Vitamin.

My daughter begs me to get her out of the hospital saying all they do for her is give her meds and that I can do for her she said. Also she promised to go to her primary doctor and Pschys doctor and will attend NAMI group and family therapy as well as go daily swimming exercise in a salt water pool. These are the things she refused to do and that's why she is back to ER. Sadly, I can't be listening to these Doctors talking to me as if I don't know anything! Angway, so I requested the MRI done and EKG exam while she is in the hospital. Doctor impl refused but give her all these meds. She needs the MRI completed in order to find out if there's any abnormal tissue that triggers which must be Treated and is schizophrenia!.

I do not have trust anymore with these newly graduates Doctor who changed meds every two weeks and say my daughter needs to be locked up in Mental Institute for a year. I plan to take my daughter out of there and be seen by her physician and have proper referal. Last year when her Neurologist and Epilepy Doctors Refered her to have EEG and MRI, she was not able to complete both the tests. MRI technician told us to request Sedation prior to re examine her brain again. I do not wish for my daughter to take these many drugs daily and be more and more spaced out. Now she is withdrawn and have diarrhea and sleep all day today. PLEASE TELL ME WHAT TO DO? X

My doctor put me on latuda a week and a half ago. I was taking Zoloft (50mg daily) but was not helping me at all. She put me on 20 mg of Prozac to get me off my previous antidepressant. The past 2 days I have felt like I am absolutely losing my mind. Could it be taking the Prozac and Latuda are not working well together. I have never taken Prozac before and like I said I am only taking it for so many days so I won't have any withdrawal symptoms from my previous medication. Response needed ASAP.

I've been on Prozac and as a female and from hearing other people on Prozac, it's better suited for men and I hated it, however cymbal is in my opinion a good mix with all drugs, but I'm not sure if it contributed to mu weight gain or not, Good luck

Latuda Causes Me Severe Hot Flashes and Chills
Yes in my experience with Latuda, and I've been on it for just over a year now, is when my dose increased from 20 mg to 30 mg the hot flashes and profuse sweating then numbing chills was over and over and over again for the next 12-14 hours. No way to sleep like this. So it's back down to 20 mg. starting tomorrow.
