Hi, so I've recently been diagnosed with manic bipolar depression. I was prescribed Latuda (40mg) and Abilify (5mg) for treatment. However, I can't seem to find any history of these drugs being used together to treat anything, let alone bipolar depression. Should they be used together to treat my disorder, or should I ask my doctor about switching medications?
I've been taking Latuda and Abilify together for several years with great results. Although Latuda is usually prescribed for Bipolar depression, the combination has greatly reduced my manic episodes also.
Best regards and best of luck to you too! Wildcat
Best of luck! With my personal opinion and 35 years on meds, I would never take two antipsychotics at the same time. But I suppose your Dr. Knows best. You have to consider long term effects, however.
