General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

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.

Does Latuda make you gain or lose weight?

About one month after starting Latuda, I abruptly had a stroke that resulted in my loss of balance, inability to walk, and disability. I was in rehab facilities for a year. I was only 49, with no underlying conditions like diabetes, smoking, or gross obesity. My weight was only about 30 lbs over normal but I was quite active; and my blood pressure was barely a few points high, but was well under control with daily meds. There was no good reason to expect a stroke at my age, in relatively good health.

If you are having stomach problems with Latuda make sure you take it with 350+ calories as stated on their home page. Take it with meal, not even 10 minutes before or after. I have taken it 10-20 minutes after and the nausea and cramping start. I never have a problem if I take directly with my meal.
hope this helps someone

cause me great amount of anxiety, energy level went up which was good. caused my paranoia to go away. but made me extremely manic, caused me to just not think about consequences and ended up in hopital from a severe manic phase i felt i could not control.. I became very scared that that had happened to me. also caused a severe bout with the restless leg syndrome that seemed to not go away at all. don't know if it is helping with depression.. i was too manic to know ,, but, did feel i was not being helped with sadness . it did not knock me out like my doctor told me it would..after a few weeks started having sleep problems again... only postive side was being able to hear normal.. and not feel so paranoid
