  1. They don’t make me manic, but don’t help much with depression either. Prozac was good for intrusive thoughts at one point.
  2. Invega made me gain weight. 10kgs. It also raised my prolactin. It’s very similar to Risperdal.
  3. I experience similar thoughts, that life is just a dream, a fantasy, a game or a computer simulation. Keep on with your treatment, hopefully these thoughts will abate. Best of luck.
  4. Bi Polar Meds and Schizophrenia

    I have bipolar with some paranoia. I take lithium, Parnate, Invega, thyroxine, Valium and Imovane. I have been improving lately.
  5. I am in hospital and have had a few new meds added, including Latuda. I've also had TMS and ECT. I'm not sure what is doing what but I'm feeling better. I didn't notice any side effects when I started Latuda. It doesn't seem to be very sedating.
  6. I found tolerance builds to the sedating effect eventually.
  7. I'm on this combo too. It isn't really working for me either. I'm not sure if it has made me worse. Since being on Latuda, Parnate, Serax, TMS nd ECT over the last few months I don't have interest in or get pleasure from barely anything.
  8. Can you try another pharmacy?
  9. I'm feeling lazy today. I don't want to do anything.
  10. Newly Diagnosed

    I am taking Latuda along with other meds. I'm not sure whether it helps because I started other treatments around the same time. It doesn't seem to be particularly sedating or to cause appetite increase.
  11. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    I feel flat today. Don't know what to do with myself.
  12. Lithium 500mg x 2 daily _ mood stabilizer Parnate _ depression Vyvanse 50mg ADD Latuda 80mg BP depression Serax for anxiety Imovane (zopiclone) for insomnia.

  14. My dad had this reaction to Zyban. Acted like he was going to kill us all.
