I am a bipolar 2 with extreme anxiety. They wont treat anxiety with benzo's anymore for fear of addiction. Does this medication help with anxiety. I have high cholesterol and wondering if this med raises that also? I really need feed back regarding this medication as most have not worked for me. I am a 'hard to treat bipolar'. Very frustrating.
Absolutely not, according to my pdoc who is a psychopharmacologist. It's why he took me off Zyprexa which blew me up 100# in 8 most and I had to have a gastric bypass because I couldn't lose it. Since I started Latuda, I haven't gained an ounce (1 year) and in fact am having trouble keeping weight on. It works as well as or better for my bipolar I than Zyprexa did also, and that did work well but for the weight gain.
