    I began Latuda after my Dad died, and I was suicidal. It helped get rid of my suicidal thoughts and helped me feel motivated to finish my last semester of college. I noticed it made me gain about 20 pounds over the course of 4 months, and sweat profusely at the gym. I was tired all the time, and would take 1-2 naps a day, for about 3 hours at a time. I would still be tired. My appetite increased a ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on countless medications and none have given me the feeling like I could really live. Yes side effects but they are controlled. I take half of an imodium with it and eat with it. So no longer have issues. I actually have real feelings and don't feel like I have had a lobotomy. The cost to me with my insurance was 15.00 after i used the company coupon. No tardive dyskinesia side ef ... Show Full Comment

    I felt that it might be helping me until, about a month into treatment, i starting involuntarily moving my lower jaw. I would be talking to someone and they would ask what i was eating..it was my jaw moving. When I went in to see my psychiatrist he saw me doing it and asked about it. He then said it was a side effect of Latuda and took me off. The jaw movement stopped within days.

    Pdoc and I agreed to add Latuda to my regime of Wellbutrin and Topamx after a few months of increasing paranoia and depression that I couldnâ??t lift despite changes to my diet and increased exercise. At 20mg, side effects have been minimal. Initially, the nausea was bad but taking it at night with the requisite 350 calories works and it seemed to pass after week 3. Six weeks in, I am up 8 * ...
