 3  Bipolar I Since switching from Seroquol 300mg to Latuda 20mg I'm now sleeping somewhat normally and waking up in the morning again while I was waking up in the evening while on Seroquel. PDOC made the switch because of excess weight gain while on Seroquel. Haven't seen any weight gain yet on Latuda. In the beginning, was experiencing some nausea but if you take if with a meal it will go away. Had some headaches and intense dreams. Otherwise, it's been ok so far. F 30 1 months

 4  Bipolar 1 The great news - Latuda pulled me out of a difficult to treat depressive episode where I had major suicide ideation. Not so good news - got hypomanic from higher dosages including bad irritability. When I take it all at bedtime it keeps me awake but when I take it all in the morning it spaces me out so I'm trying to get a compromise. I'm seriously considering on dropping it because I feel flat (blunted) and no libido. I just don't feel like myself. Also intense dreams, then waking up sudden & very anxious. Maybe I should go back to the AP I wanted to get off "be careful what you wish for" goes the saying or something in between. *** important*** I was shocked when I picked up my RX the first time - 30 days = $3,688.49!!! Thank goodness I have insurance because there's no way in heck that I can afford that! F 44 3 months

 1  Schizoaffective disorder Extreme sedation, increased depression, intense suicidal ideation, abnormal dystonic muscle spasms, nausea, tardive dyskinesia This drug is just nasty. It is supposed to help with depression, but for me, it increased my depression and caused suicidal thinking that I never had before. It literally forces your eyes to become droopy/close due to the extreme fatigue. The movement effects are bad too. AWFUL, awful experience. I can't wait to be off of this drug!! F 33 1 years

 5  treatment-resistant depression The usual dry mouth of all psych drugs. Some anxiety while I was transitioning from Abilify. This has been a great drug for me. I was taking Abilify and hated it. Gained almost 10 pounds, and that in itself made very depressed. I've lost some weight on Latuda, and I feel like I have more energy and motivation. I just visited my parents and they said my mood was so much brighter. Abilify just seemed to weigh me down, literally and figuratively. I was very nervous about trying something new but I'm glad I did it. F 1 months

 1  Mood disorder I was always exhausted, to the point of drinking multiple cups of coffee a day and taking hour long naps before going to bed early. Working was nearly impossible and it caused me to have basically no social life because I just couldn't stay awake. Aside from the constant fatigue and exhaustion, it helped only mildly.

 1  bipolar/major depressive disorder Was not sure why the doctor chose to switch me to this med from Effexor XR which I had been on for years and it was working well. Because I was in the hospital I chose not to fight the system & took the med. Within 1 week I noticed the worst of my personal side effects....weight gain....Within 3 weeks I had gained almost 20 lbs!! I discontinued the med & returned to Effexor. My understanding is that weight gain is not a big side effect, I disagree. Since the med stays in your system for a week or so after you discontinue I continued to gain weight. I gained almost 30 lbs before it stopped. As with all weight gain med or otherwise gained; I haven't been able to lose it yet. I really didn't notice any mental problems. I know all meds are different for each person. My suggestion to people that easily gain weight would be to really discuss with your MD before just blindly taking. Side effects are hard to manage; always discuss with your Doctor & don't be afraid to ask a million questions so you really understand the medications. F 49 30 days

 1  BiPolar Depression headache, increased appetite, weight gain, short temper, irritable, very tired, sleeping all the time, very high blood sugar, wacky dreams I was hoping this was the med for me after reading such good reviews but as you can see from the side effects it wasn't. I'm type 2 diabetic and was on abilify as well and that worked well for me until I had to stop taking it because of much higher blood sugar readings. Lamotragine gave me intolerable insomnia. Latuda has been a 2 week nightmare for me. I hope others have better luck with it. I know 2 weeks isn't very long and should see if the side effects wain but they are just so bad now that I can't!

 1  BIpolar2,PTSD,Panic Disorder Severe cognitive impairment, De- realization/ personalization. Blurred vision, slow and difficult movement of limbs, weak hands, severe inner restlessness, indigestion, gas, itchy skin, dizzy, cold like symptoms.overall sick feeling. I really wanted this to work. I'm treatment resistant so far to all bi-polar depression meds. Zyprexa worked great but, even with metformin, couldn't keep sugar levels in safe range. Latuda felt like a bad acid trip! The worse symptom was being totally "feelingless and thoughtless" yet having a restlessness that left me running around opening and closing blinds, misplacing things, forgetting to stop washing my face!......awful sick feeling too.

 4  Severe depression/suicidal thoughts I started at 20 MG, and the only side effect I noticed was an inner-restlessness, like I didn't want to stop moving. I began to take it in the morning with breakfast because it actually kept me up. Now I take it at night because I get sleepy. Although I saw an immediate improvement in my depression, I still had some intense suicidal urges a few weeks later, so my doctor upped the dosage to 40. The only difference I've noticed is increased sleepiness and nausea. It is definitely helping with my depression. I am able to be around people, and able to motivate myself to do things again! I couldn't even get up before. F 23 1 months

 4  Bipolar decreased appetite, increased body temperature at times, horrible backache, decreased sex drive I got off of Risperdal to combat my low sex drive. Latuda worked at first but at this point I am taking such a high dose, it doesn't combat the problem any more. Overall I like this medicine. I am happier, have more energy and seem to be stabler. My mother siad it was like having her old daughter back. I've had a terrible backache since I increased the dose past 80MG, but the medicine works so well I am willing to live with it. F 30 3 months
