I suffer from major panic attacks and anxiety I feel blue all the time my dr. Just put me on Latuda because she said it will help with that and my bipolar what do you guys think
It might help some people, it does not help me with my anxiety or agoraphobia, it worsens it. I have been prescribed 120mg I DO NOT take that amount because the side affects were far too overwhelming for me to deal with. I cut my dose back by half. Since its mainly for schizophrenia, which I have the half dose is manageable and calms the voices and the confusions somewhat. But it makes the anxiety and my ocd worsen and because I also suffer from bdd and dermotillomania those factors make me agoraphobic to the point that i cannot leave my room if there are any people around. I would ask your doctor for a prescription that is made for anxiety. I am trying to have my doctor understand that he needs to adjust my klonopin dosage so this vicious cycle with my bdd and ocd will stop. I have been a prisoner of my room for 2 weeks so far and i cant get an appointment until the end of the month. Ugh.
