mj1127 Posted April 27, 2011 Share Posted April 27, 2011 The world's most intractable depression continues. It started some time in 2008, has been worse than it is now, but won't just go away. I'm exhausted. We've tried most of the usual suspects, and nothing has made a big difference. Currently I'm taking 1200mg Li CR(level 1.2, but measured one day after a bad migraine and ibuprofen - with permission - so it's not really that high), 5mg Abilify, 75mg Wellbutrin IR TID (pdoc does not like AD's for bipolar, but I begged), .125mg Xanax XR BID, 20mg Adderall IR BID. The new plan is to gradually drop the Abilify to 2.5mg over 3 weeks, and to add low dose Latuda if I'm not better. Unless I heard her wrong, she is thinking 20mg. Can you cut the 40mg tablets? She has other patients on Latuda, some also on low dose Abilify, and all are doing well and feeling positive except for one woman who became hypomanic. Like other pdocs, she claims it is weight neutral, but I just read the PI and it says to monitor patients for weight gain. I guess we'll see. She mentioned that she is not using it for psychosis. So has anyone taken, or heard of anyone taking 20mg Latuda, and has anyone taken it with Abilify? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
