Latuda is a new anti-psychotic med that the MD prescribed to me in place of Abilify hoping that it would be better. I tend to have breakthrough depression and episodes on Abilify. I just started it and was wondering if anyone had any experience good or bad with Latuda.

Hey All, I did pretty good on the Latuda at first, but after about a 10 days to 2 weeks I started hitting a slump. Within a few days, I was severely depressed. I didn't know what was going on. Thankfully, I had already made an appointment with the pdoc, and I was able to see her right away. She doubled the Latuda to 80mg per night, and I woke up this morning feeling great at the baseline. Yeah!!! Sometimes, the meds work pretty good, but then after a couple of weeks, there needs to be an adjustment. In my case, I needed more.
