I have been on Latuda for about A month . But my doctor changed my dosage to 120 my and I cannot sleep.I take 2mg of xanax but still my legs feel like I have the worst case of restless leg syndrome. So many good reviews. Has a any one else had similar experiences? Thank you
Yes, sleeplessness is a common side effect. It may lessen as time passes.
Hi, with dose changes can come unwanted side effects... below are some of the known side effects that could contribute to how you are feeling:
inability to sit still
incremental or ratchet-like movement of the muscle
muscle trembling, jerking, or stiffness
need to keep moving
rigid or stiff muscles
shakiness in the legs, arms, hands, or feet
Hopefully this is a temporary thing and you will get past these symptoms with a little time... I also take an antipsychotic and suffered with side effects at the start of my treatment, but the majority of these have listed. Unfortunately i still suffer with grinding my teeth in my sleep - so have to wear a mouthguard - but i can put up with this as it is only a small thing compared to how well my medication has treated my condition. Hoping you feel better soon!
