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

I was on Latuda for about 5 weeks and had terrible hot flashes. I 'still' have them 6 weeks later! Are they ever going to go away? I hope this is not a permanent damage to my thermostat. I sweat even after drying after a shower!!

I took latuda for 2 months and started having severe hotflashes, and I'm 25. I got off of latuda and hot flashes went away after a week.

I was recently told that the hot flashes may 'not' be related to the Latuda. That they shouldn't last that long. We'll see.

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.

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!

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
