I am bipolar schizoaffective and have been on it for about two months. IT IS A LIFE SAVER. I love this drug. I was seeing reality as a hell underworld and everyone looked like demons eventually including myself. It was really scary. A week with latuda and it was much better. Now its perfect. <3

Comment:
Was on Latuda for over a year (40mg dose at night) for extreme insomnia due to anxiety and depression. It helped me get to sleep (usually) but did nothing for keeping me asleep so I continued to wake 5-7x/night. It does nothing for my anxiety.
