Latuda (lurasidone) is an atypical antipsychotic that has been out for about a year. Weight gain and metabolic side effects don't seem to be problems according to what I've read. Latuda is a relative of Geodon (ziprasidone), but lacks the NE/5-HT reuptake inhibition of Geodon. Latuda also blocks 5-HT7 receptors, an effect that might explain its purported antidepressant properties.

I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
