I've been on Latuda for almost two years and while it has been good for my mood I've noticed I have no sex drive now and I've also gained weight. I see my doctor tomorrow and I want to be tapered off of it. Has anyone else had this problem? Did you go off of Latuda? If so what do you take now? Thanks!
For the weight gain aspect, Latuda does not cause this. Numerous studies have been done because it's colleagues are so bad about it, e.g., quetiapine and olanzapine. Sex drive, I also don't think it typically affects, but it's possible. What dosage are you on? Could you be depressed? Latuda can treat depression up to 60 mg.
