I got stiff muscles in my hands and had a restless feeling in them after taking 40 mg once a day for two weeks.. Besides that it really helped my mood. Please help!
Hi, Shana! Yes, let your doctor know that you're having this side effect. It might help you to adjust to the medication if you took a 20mg dose for a week or two. On the other hand, I had the same exact effect when I started Latuda and it went away altogether in about 3 - 3 1/2 weeks.
Let your doctor decide for you unless it's unbearable.
Best wishes, WCV
