I feel like I'm always asleep by about two hours after taking Latuda. It's not like seroquel sedation, it's more natural feeling but very powerful. If I take it at 7, I'm out by 9. If I take it at 8, I'm out by 10. It's frustrating because I don't want to eat later than 8, so I'm always in bed by 10. Does anyone else experience this?
I was taking 120 mg Latuda. It did not make me tired at all. Neither at 80 as I'm on now.
Now My Dr prescribes me Serequel, at 100 mg ( option to take up to 200 mg) as a sleeping aid at night. Now that knocks me out and makes me hungry as a pig. The combo knocks me out for 10+ hours. Just Serequel knocks me out for 6-8 hours.
My friend also takes 80 mg of Latuda for schizoid affect disorders ( he hears things), and he is knocked out in 1 hour.
I am Bi Polar 1, and I have pervasive thinking.
