I took latuda 40mg for depression and abnormal/negative thinking, but I am still depressed get these unwanted thoughts and always scared of something as if something is going to happen to me. I can't laugh fully or enjoy life. So I decided to try 5-HTP and not take my other medicine. I am wondering how much should I take a day. I have 100mg so my mood can be better and these thoughts can go away!
Hajira; Sorry you're doing everything backward you should not do this without talking with your doctor Latuda is a very strong medication And you don't what to just stop it you could get some severe withdrawals ask your doctor prior to changing therapy. There really is not a good way to compare 5-HTP to a drug like Latuda. Please call and get some advice from your doctor first.
