Or bipolar? I have treatment resistant MDD and anxiety and was prescribed the Latuda. I am feeling very irritable and more anxious ... on 10 mg. Any thoughts ?
Anyone take Latuda in addition to Effexor or any antidepressant and you are not schizophrenic?

Are you still on Effexor? Maybe consider coming off of it. I was on it since 2016 Started having terrible anxiety like all day long for over a year. Have been very depressed also. Kept complaining to my doctor and she prescribed me Latuda a couple of weeks ago. I never did take it because I am allergic to it. Therefore I lost all confidence in my doctor for overlooking this and stopped taking the Effexor. Almost instantly (2 days) the anxiety got better and then stopped. I do not recommend that you just stop a medication without a doctor helping you. I was desperate and am currently searching for another doctor. Plus everyone is different. I would appreciate hearing about your experience with Effexor and how you are doing today.
Yes, I was also very nervous about starting Latuda @ 20mgs for Anxiety/ Panic & Depression... it’s also used off label for sleep ( insomnia) as well... But very widely used for anxiety & depression beyond the scope of Bipolar & it’s FDA indications...
Clinical practice allows use for what ( WORKS) This medication is really incredible for depression, anxiety & trouble with sleep as it’s hitting all those brain receptors more than any other Drug in its class ...
please give it a shot if your doctor thinks you should try it...
I’m really impressed with how quickly & how much it’s helping me !
