koali777 Posted March 8, 2012 Share Posted March 8, 2012 I mean I know they're both AAPs, but I have noticed that many similar meds have similar suffixes (like Risperdal and Invega, or benzos, etc). So lurasidone and ziprasidone are like that as well. I am starting Latuda today, my new pdoc said there are way less side effects, and I'm wondering if it's gonna be like Geodon. I liked Geodon and it was what I'd wanted to be put back on, just not overmedicated. I couldn't find the exact answer to my question, but I did find a study where both lurasidone and ziprasidone were given to schizophrenic patients in a double blind study, and the results were very similar. Maybe I'm not making sense...is it supposed to be a "better" Geodon? How's the akathesia with it btw? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
