So after seeing my pdoc today and talking to her about possibly going on Abilify, she gave me an rx for Latuda. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this AAP since it is fairly new. I took it at about four o'clock and am now feeling very tired. Part of the reason I wanted to get off risperdal is because I was feeling very tired. I'd love some feedback! Thanks!

Make sure you take it with at least 350 calories in case you didn't know.
Good luck with it!

I take 40 mg of Latuda in the morning and have been very pleased with the results. I have had no SEs and I think it is helping to keep my mood up.
Hope it works well for you.
