I have a tremor and want to start on Latuda. My doctor said to start with 10 mg and see if it helps for a week
Ok! So here's the secret- - I've done a lot of research and I even was on the highest dose of Latuda! It's just like not taking it at all unless you eat a minimum of 350 calories with fat in it. So say you have an Ensure PLUS Or bowl of ice cream, or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, it won't absorb into your body. My psychiatrist confirmed my research and actually was aware of this major detail! He told me what I already knew, so thank God for brilliant psychiatrists who are in on the upcoming newer drugs. And that is the reason I never got any depression relief with this supposedly best mood disorder drug out there! So my advice is take it with a meal, then get up to 60mg ... do a trial... if it does something for you--great! But you should know by then if it is going to be helpful to you.
