I have taken them all, even Clozapine (Clozaril) and I'm hoping Latuda helps. So far I've seen improvement in my "delusions" and hallucinations. I go from 80 mg to 120 mg tomorrow. My pdoc is hoping that will help as I live in a world of terror bookended by being manic, and depressed. I also take Lamictal, Trazodone, Effexor (though she's thinking of getting rid of that), Prazosin (for nightmares), Buspar,and Seroquel (PRN only). I've been in-patient 17 times in the last decade. I'm praying Latuda does the trick. So far so good. I just want to know if there are more people like me on it.
Hi Artist1980, I have bipolar and have taken Latuda. Unfortunately I was unable to continue it due to my being allergic to something in it. It did help though. I could definitely tell a big difference when I took it. My thinking was markedly clearer, no voices, or excessive "background noise" in my head. I really wish I could've stayed on it, but due to the allergy I could'nt, I hope that helps. Good luck and continue to improve!
I'm bipolar and have been on Latuda almost 2 weeks. I'm no longer depressed but am extremely irritable and fly off the handle easily. Usually I can control myself better but now I can't and no one seems to understand that. It has helped me greatly but I'm beginning to question if it's worth the nervousness, anxiety and irritability it's been causing in me
