My son was on this for YEARS during his adolescent development turning into a teenager and grew slight breasts and constant movements they won't diagnose as TD. We put a stop to Latuda and they shrunk considerably and the movements got better but neither went away.
Hello, does anyone know if there is a class action lawsuit against Latuda? My son is 31 and he has this terrible condition. His right arm constantly Jenks and swings, he has facial tics as well as constant mouth movements. He cannot work, and at times has a hard time feeding himself.
Someone please help. I took Latuda for 4 years and was told it was safe to take during pregnancy and breastfeeding. After pregnancy, I notice the symptoms of TD in my mouth and face. Later, it traveled all over my body. My 3 year old son has shown the symptoms shortly after I stopped breast feeding him. I have to pay out-of-pocket to get a full brain exam because a regular doctor on my insurance isn’t listening to me. I’m on the verge of loosing my job. Please help!!!
Hi Loucretia & Everyone participating on this thread. I too have had permanent damage due to the drug latuda and I am actively seeking assistance to make others aware of the damages just to allow them the warning which I was not allowed. I think I may have run a cross something about a suit allow me to dig a little further then I'll post the information here for you & anyone who would need it. Good luck with everything to everyone I wish you the best in happiness and health.
I developed CRPS a painful nerve disorder of the nervous system and autonomic nervous system that causes burning pain throughout the body. I want to sue them because, before this drug I didn’t have any of these problems.
My daughter has struggled with depression and eating disorders since thirteen, now twenty-seven. She excels in college, four classes away from her biology/chemistry degree, headed to medical school next year with a high gpa, her dream us to be an ER doc. Her Psyc put her on Latuda and before being on the drug only three weeks the symptoms of TD hit. Right now she can’t even sleep, the continual facial distortions, scratching, grunting, difficult breathing, lack of concentration, arms jerking, constant leg movement when at rest.. last night I was up with her until 4:00 am .. she can’t drive, she’s missing classes.. I’m so afraid her life is over not to mention her goal of emergency medicine, she’s worked so hard. She’s been off the drug for two weeks and she just continues to get worse every day. What can I do for her?
Her Psyc wants to put her on Rexulti now, but how do we lessen these symptoms and get her some rest? She’s exhausted from the constant movement.
Is there a class action lawsuit against latuda. Have only been taking latuda for a couple of months and i am experiencing td and losing everything because of this bad drug?
Haven't found one but looking for one, because of latuda I had a disk pulled out of my neck
I wish I had a good answer. I was on Latuda for 6 months. I had at least 3 episodes where I blacked out. Hospitalized for the first one and terrified my family the others. I have zero memories of these episodes or what I did. But I did have to survive the embarrassing fallout. I lost 2-3 days each time, and was only semi coherent for 2 days after that until I felt sort of normal. I overdosed on all my other meds, something I have never done, and why did I overdose? I dunno because I don't remember. My husband recorded me acting like a hopped up druggie, red glazed over eyes shaking mumbling and trying to take more meds. My hubby took my medications from me and had to play nurse giving me what I needed and when. He once found me shuffling down the middle of the road, in my pajamas, in the middle of the day. I disappeared for hours and I may never fully know what I did during those times.
Once at 11pm in the pouring rain I decided to walk to work, again in pajamas, my 13 year old daughter had to chase after me in the rain until my husband caught up. Took both of them to get me home, I fought back! I lost work as did my hubby. luckily I didn't lose my job. between the absurd cost of the medication, my erratic behavior and a hospital visit I filed bankruptcy. I also have the body/limb twitches, violently some part of my body twitches for no reason. hard to drive when my head decides it needs to look over the right shoulder right now! also gained 20 pounds that I can't lose.
I am or was a crane operater. No one will hire a crane operater that can't control hand movement. I took latuda and my hands begin to shake. Couldn't eat with a spoon everything fell out of it. I don't have Parkinson's that's what my psychiatrist told me that was wrong with me. He was the biggest a-hole I ever met. now I'm out of work out of money and can't do anything to make it up. So I'm doing the same thing looking for somebody that's suing the pharmaceutical company that made it
No I do not but I am looking for such. I have never had a more terrifying experience in my life than the tardive diskenesia which came over me. I've been battling it for three weeks now. In emergency room twice--from taking this awful drug once. Horrifying.
Hello, I am wanting to follow along also to see if there are any Open Class Action Lawsuits that happen.
Hello Loucretia Wells. I would also like to know the answer to this. Latuda ruined my life. I lost everthing I held dear. Please message me back so we can discuss this further.
Nothing as of right now. I developed irreversible TD and wish there was a way to be compensated. It was given to me inpatient and I was not aware of the risk.
