I am hoping to feel happy again. I feel like sleeping my life away and nothing else. I am so depressed and can t seem to snap out of it. I am praying Latuda will help.
charramsey, What you are feeling is very normal. Myself I would rather take Latuda then Lamogine here are a few things Latuda are recommended for (Latuda (lurasidone) is an antipsychotic medicine. It works by changing the effects of chemicals in the brain.
Latuda is used to treat schizophrenia in adults and teenagers who are at least 13 years old. THE PART I am trying to have you see is the first part it changes the chemical in the brain to help you with dealing with depression and anxiety. And also as you can see they can use it on children as young as 13. At this point, they really have had pretty good luck with this medication, And normally they start the dose low and if needed slowly increase the dose until the maximum benefits are reached. And also I know this has been used for many people that can't get up and get going. I really think this could be one that could help you. And it also helps to keep a notebook about any effects you may feel and let the doctor know at your next appointment Or call the doctor if it is too much. And a added benefit is you should slowly get your sleep back. So anyway this should work much better than what you have been on. And please don't worry there are many others if you do not get the results that you need they have come out with some great medication in the last few years and you know we are all different and different medication work different on all of us. But this one has worked for lots of people. Try not to worry when you go to start this and know that the first dose or two may feel like it hits you harder but this is all normal until your system gets used to it so try and start it on a day that you do not have to do anything special. Hope this well help you a bit. I feel you are making the right choice. and hope you have a good evening. Chuck1957
