Latuda update...

Posted by Sheilac on August 25, 2016, at 12:39:51

This summer I went off Geodon due to severe akathesia. I then tried Latuda. I was up to 80mg and it totally took away my appetite, made me a little nauseous and gave me increased salivation, which was weird. Due to the increased salivation I ended up getting canker soars. I guess the inside of my mouth was all messed up.

Then I wanted to try Pristiq again, but my insurance wouldn't cover it.

My doc was on vacation so the on call doc called me in Abilify. In the past I've stopped Abilify due to weight gain. At first I just tried 2.5mg, but it did nothing for my severe depression, so I went up to 5mg and it's helping.

I don't really notice an increase in appetite, so I'm really keeping track of my weight. I lost weight on Latuda and have gained back about 4lbs since switching to Abilify.

I really hope the Abilify doesn't cause weight gain.

I also wish I could try the Latuda again, but I'm not sure I could handle the crazy salivation. Plus, I totally lost my taste buds. Nothing tasted good and I just didn't eat on Latuda.

Does anyone know if increased salivation goes away?
