Hi, nic! If you don't eat at least 350 calories with Latuda your body will not absorb the medication. Waste of time and $$$$$. Also, you cannot have grapefruit while taking Latuda.
"Latuda should be taken with food (at least 350 calories)."
"Avoid consuming grapefruit or grapefruit juice during treatment with lurasidone, as it may increase blood levels of the medication. This can increase the risk of side effects such as Parkinson-like symptoms, abnormal muscle movements, seizures, high blood sugar, diabetes, high cholesterol, weight gain, sex hormone irregularities, and heat-related disorders such as heat intolerance or heat stroke. In addition, you may be more likely to experience side effects associated with low blood pressure such as dizziness, lightheadedness, headache, flushing, fainting, and heart palpitations."
