I've been reading some of the reviews and I'm scared to use the prescription I was given and start today...
I have been taking latuda for about a year i started out on 40mg and have been increased to 120mg. I suffer from schizophrenia, ocd, bdd, disassociative personality disorder, anxiety, severe depression, dermotillamania, aspberger syndrome and agoraphobia. For me my perfect dosage of latuda is 60mg the 40 didnt do too much, the 80 made me feel like a zombie and the 120 made me feel like a hungover bobble head. I also take fluoxetine (which i quit this week), mirtazipine, klonopin, sometimes olanzipine and sometimes haloperidol. The latuda has helped with the constant music and mumbling, it has helped with the shadow people and it helps to keep my people calmer at this dose. Higher doses made my people disappear or caused greater anxiety and rls making it impossible to sleep or be still and triggering my ocd and bdd very negatively causing several day bouts of agoraphobia where i never left my room. I think the dose you are trying could be beneficial even up to 60mg depending on your severity but i highly recommend avoiding any higher of a dose it causes too much discord, confusion and anxiety. Good luck. I hope this helps.
