Comment:
I have bipolar I. Had to come off lithium due to kidney disease in 2007. Many years search for effective drug. In Nov. 2012, went on Latuda at 40 mg. Dosage adjusted to 60 mg in Jan. 2013 during hypomanic episode. Stable since then.

Being on medications for so long, I know within 2 days MAX whether or not a new med is going to work. I knew day one this was going to help. I had a mild headache only on day 1 and day 3 i did not take the 350 calories and became nauseous but better after eating. ... Show Full Comment
