I began to have restless leg issues about 2 days after starting. Considering it is a side effect, will it subside?
I was hoping to find an answer to this myself! I have been taking Latuda for 6 weeks. The past week I have had awful restless body syndrome. It starts in my legs but I just feel so besides myself. I hope your restless issues have subsided. This has been going on for 7 days and the only way for me to make it stop so I can sleep at night is by taking 100 mg of Seroquel. Its the worst when I'm at work and I can't sit still. It seems like my body wants to just flail all day. Ughh
Took 10mgs of latuda last night. Soon after the restless legs/body started. I did not come close to sleeping and was distressed to have this reaction. The thing is that my depression got somewhat better anyway. I find it somewhat ironic that physically it feels pretty bad, but mentally I feel better even though I could not lie down for more than a few minutes. Better than Seroquel that tortured me without anything good happening. Has anyone had success coping with this?
I will give it another tomorrow; will try taking it in the morning. Anyone else have similar reaction?
I see the cost is $1200 a month. I can get samples for now but to pay for that would eat through my drug insurance in a few months.
