I was taking Latuda a few months ago and I noticed I was a lot more active and walking more. I felt more upbeat. Did anyone else feel that way while taking Latuda?
It can take 4-6 weeks or longer to feel the full effects of Latuda. Typically patients begin at a low dose of medicine and the dose is increased slowly over several weeks.
For treatment of depressive episodes of bipolar disorder (when used alone or with lithium or valproate), the dose usually ranges from 20 mg to 120 mg. Only your health care provider can determine the correct dose for you.
It may be that you need a dosage adjustment or just to give the medication more time to work.
