How long does it take for 40mg per day of Latuda to get out of your system. I have been taking for about 8 months and have had an increase in my blood sugar and not being diabetic
It takes about 4 days to be out of your body. Is your dr aware that you are stopping it? Are you tapering the dose?
I do not recommend latuda it gave me really bad tremors and insomnia! It is terrible and should never be prescribed in my opinion
Everybody reacts differently to every medication. As with all antipsychotics, an increase in blood glucose is a potential side effect but is uncommon with Latuda:
Uncommon (0.1% to 1% of users): Increase in blood sugar levels/blood glucose increased"
I've been taking Latuda for about two years now... highly effective... with zero side effects.
I’ve just been taking Latuda for about a month and I can hardly take the side effects. I sweat profusely I’m very anxious. I move very slowly I just want them to stop!
I have been off Latuda for about 3 months and am experiencing TD (Tardive Dyskenesia) and soreness/pain in my shoulders and upper arms. I am now researching ongoing side effects and am considering legal action against the manufacturer.
These are commonly reported and have been disclosed in the literature and in the product insert that accompanies your prescription.
"Common (1% to 10%): Dizziness, dyskinesia, dystonia/acute dystonia, tardive dyskinesia"
"Common (1% to 10%): Back pain, musculoskeletal stiffness, joint stiffness, myalgia, neck pain".
"Are there any Latuda lawsuits?
No, Latuda has not been the subject of any mass tort law suits."
You can only take legal action if a company is aware of a side effect and does not disclose it.
I hated Latuda from the moment it was given to me. The most obvious side effect was dramatic weight gain. Then an increase in blood sugar levels, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, inability to sleep more than two hours at a time, inability to concentrate and some other drug interactions; one of which is considered dangerous and should never be taken together. I found this out today, left a message with my psychiatrist and did not take the Latuda tonight.
I am dreading withdrawals but hope to feel better soon. Will check in next week.
Currently getting off of it myself. I knew it was the wrong med for me right away. Constant vomiting and starting having a temper. Doctor upped my dosing thinking it'd help my psychosis. Since I've been having more delusions on people I know and hallucinating. Nope, doesn't do anything for that. Just makes me want to fist fight people and I get sick every time I take it. Its about 50/50 if it stays in my system. Granted this med and all antipsycodics work differently for everyone. I'm hoping I get a new antipsycodic soon. So far the only one that worked was abilify but I got tics from it after a year.
