Just curious if anyone knows whether or not you can cut Latuda... I'm going to be weaning off Zyprexa and getting on it so I figured I'd try to start with a lower dose. Thanks!

Dx Bipolar


Lithium 1500mg
Lamictal 150mg
Effexor 300mg
Klonopin 1.125mg
Armour 105mg

Call your pharmacist or pdoc.
Diagnoses: Schizoaffective Bipolar Type ("Significant, Severe, Chronic, and Clear Cut"), Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Anorexia (in remission; dx in early teen years), OCD (dx in early teen years)

Current Meds: 600mg Seroquel, 30mg Abilify, 100mg Trazodone, 200mg Lamictal, 300mg Effexor XR, 3mg Klonopin.

Some days are better than others, but I do what I can.

How I'm doing now: I am down and am suicidal. I want to stay in bed forever. I never want to leave the apartment. The voices have been really bothering me. They also put thoughts in my head that aren't mine. They do this to torture me constantly. It is never silent.

^ This. If you have med questions not regarding treatment, it's always prudent and easiest to call a pharmacy - any pharmacy. You'll get much more accurate info there than here.

I *think* my pdoc said you can cut it. Talk to yours or a pharmacist before acting on that info, though.
