Latuda and heavy sweating
| Tina Bush
I took latuda for 5 months and the excessive sweating started right away. I stopped taking it about 5 months sgo. I'm still sweating like crazy, I'm miserable! Every time I take a shower and get dressed I have to sit for at least 30 min. with a paper towel and constantly wipe myself off all over my head, face, arms, neck and back. This is horrible. If it does not stop, I'm gonna kill myself or just have to be a recluse cus I feel funny going out feeling like I stink.

Please can you help me please?

Hi, I am being treated for chronic paranoid schizophrenia with Latuda. I love Latuda because it's the first drug which helps with memory, diet and clear thinking. Problem is, I now hear voices though I'm used to that, I'm slightly delusional which is ok as I'm just managing that but it began to give me anxiety which is now chronic and I feel intensely spiritual... Please could you help me as I feel on deaths door? Gratefully, Fiona

My psychiatrist gave me samples of Latuda and I do NOT have bipolar disorder. I am clinically depressed and this drug is not doing anything for my depression. I am so disappointed.

Latuda addiction
| loose cannon
Currently on 40 mg. I function well with it. I got scared with stuff I read on the internet so I tried to taper down with the goal of eventually hopefully getting off of it. I take it at night. I went to 20 mg at night the other day, and by 10 am I was anxious felt like I had the flu so I took the other half. Within half an hour I was fine. I guess, yeah, Im addicted to it. Don't think I'll ever get off it. Plus, this dose is starting to not feel strong enough as my brain feels a little "loose, out of control". We'll see what happens in the future.

I've been on Latuda for about 4 years. Latuda saved my life. However, I've gained 70lbs from being on Latuda. Im going detox off of Latuda because the weight gain has caused other health problems.

Latuda is not for me so I stopped taking it....I tried taking it in the morning (20mg) and I feel asleep driving to work. Then I took it at night, felt groggy when I woke up and could not focus my eyes and tired the rest of the morning...am on wellbutrin and lamotrigine and I am going to leave it like that. Terrible product...

I don't know about stys but my left eye has had a nerve twitch and I have had hot flashes,and running nose during hot flash days only for at least 2 weeks they eased up after a week in a half or so. My stomach feels like it's going to pop it hurts so bad :( and have gained plenty of weight all this has just started and been on Latina 2 months exactly. I'm miserable. I have had a few peaks where I thought it was going to work just went back to same depressed state more cuz I'm fatter . Just want to worn people just cuz no side effects show up within a few weeks even a month. Don't mean they want. Hope this helps some.

I have been. Diagnosed with bipolar 2 and was give. Latuda. I started feeling reslestlessness in my feet and legs while taking the medicine and it felt really uneasy, not a hurting not stinging feeling but rather an uneasy feeling that would keep me woke at night because I always feel the urge to move my legs. I stopped taking the medicine for three days and after the second day I didn't experience the feeling in my legs so I started to do some research restless leg syndrome...I also take zanaflex for muscle spasms and have been wondering about how it all works together in the body...inam on my feet all day at work so it doesn't affect me then, it usually comes over me evening and night....I wish I knew what to do to help beside just move around cause that doesn't seem to help me much at all
