Can this antipsychotic help treatment-resistant unipolar depression like Abilify? Or does it only help bipolar depression? 

Also, how is this antipsychotic in the weight gain department? How does it compete against the others?

It has less metabolic side effects (weight gain) than the others. It’s great for that. 

As to unipolar depression, there’s been some literature on unipolar depression with mixed features but just straight unipolar, it hasn’t been studied well enough to really know one way or the other. 

I took it for depression/PTSD and it helped me until it gave me really bad EPS and plunged me into hell. I wish it hadn’t - it did good things for my brain.

I'm taking 80mg Latuda every day and it helps me stay thin 5'6" 155lbs. It's the only antipsychotic I tried that hasn't made me obese.

I take it for bipolar depression and schizophrenia. I never had any problems with it but I had to take cogentin.
