... depressive i read all the side effects and it seems like it will do the oppiste for sleep
Latuda is cited by the manufacturer as being a second-generation anti-psychotic, used for the treatment of schizophrenia. The best bet is to speak to your doctor further about why he/she chose this drug, as it is classified at this time as being an "off-label" drug for bipolar disorder; meaning that it has not received FDA approval for the treatment of that condition, under ordinary circumstances. If you are unhappy with this particular drug, let the doctor know, as there are many others on the market.
I did not have insomnia before taking Latuda. Now I have terrible insomnia. Can go to sleep after 30min - 1 hr, but wake up at 2am and am unable to return to sleep. I wake up full of anxiety and racing thoughts, which I also did not have before Latuda. Initially, the med was ok and had desired results (I am taking it for schizophrenia) but over a matter of 2-3 months these side effects have become almost unbearable.
