Hi Maxwell.

I'm sorry to hear that you are experiencing such uncomfortable side effects. What you describe sounds very much like akathisia, in which case your doctor might elect to discontinue the medication. Akathisia can be extrememly uncomfortable, but does not usually cause permanent damage.

Do you experience extreme restlessness? Do you find yourself pacing back and forth? Do you rock back and forth while sitting. When standing in one place, do you constantly shift your weight from one foot to the other? Do you feel as if you want to crawl out of your skin?

If I were you, I would call the doctor today.

What is your diagnosis?

Why was Latuda chosen?

What other antipsychotics have you already tried?

Please keep posting to let us know how you are doing.
