... psychosis, primarily paranoia. Do you think if I took another 40 mgs with dinner that it would help? Does anyone else take Latuda 2X a day?
Hi, Buggs! How long have you been taking your Latuda? It can take several weeks (4-6wks) to feel the full effects. If it's been longer than that I'd suggest talking to your doctor about a dosage increase as you're on a relatively low dose. The dosage can be increased to a maximum of 160mg/day if needed.
Latuda should only be taken once a day and be sure you're taking it with at least a 350 calorie meal.
Anything less and your metabolism will only absorb a small portion of your dose. If you eat a light breakfast you might consider changing the time you take it to after your heaviest meal. And remember, no grapefruit or grapefruit juice... it interferes with absorption of the drug.
You should never change the dosage or timing of your medication without the knowledge and consent of your prescribing doctor.
