I just started taking Latuda 2 weeks ago for Bipolar 1 and I'm not noticing any difference. My doctor added the Latuda because the Lithium was not stabilizing my severe mood swings. Keep in mind everyone responds differently to medication so your outcome will be different.

The pharmaceutical company has a TV ad that it is good for bipolar depression but never tells the public that it is an atypical antipsychotic. I find that desturbing.

reneegigliotti replied to addyd's response:
Why is that relevant? It doesn't make the medication any more or less effective because it's an atypical antipsychotic. Are you worried about the stigma? That's not the pharmaceutical company's concern. Their job is to research drugs that treat medical conditions. If you have a stigma issue, that's a psychotherapy problem.
