      I’m sorry to hear of your problems with latuda and my husband is also having horrible side effects from it. He stopped it 3 weeks ago but is still having trouble walking, balance, and has fallen twice in the last two days. His symptoms are described as Parkinson Disease like and we ended up in the ER a few weeks ago, it got so bad.
      Would appreciate any additional comments. We now have an appointment with a neurologist!
      Thanks you.

    Patients should not use Latuda if they are also using antidepressants ?? I was on celexa with this drug doctor recommended but I had to stop gave me a reaction. My throat muscles constricted and I couldnt move my mouth it was unconfortable and got little painful. albance gave me bendral and now I take serquel its working much better. They put me on new drugs at first cause I didnt have any insurance.

    I took Latuda for a couple of weeks +. I am running out of time to sue. I am plagued with permanent side effects. It’s a struggle to walk, though i go through rounds of Physical Therapy, stay as active as possible. I do well for awhile, then i have a set back and need to nearly start over. i have bouts of akathesia or EPS or something like that, for which i take another medication. I gnash my teeth and sometimes my arms or legs jerk. I have hostility issues that began the first week of taking Latuda, but no one at the Mental Health facility that i go to had read the insert regarding the side effects, including akathesia or EPS, and hostility (in 10 1//2 years with the same therapist, I had never, ever exhibited symptoms that alerted him before. I’m not a hostile or disruptive client in any way).
    It felt as though my central nervous system was attacking my musculoskeletal system. When i called the after hours line to report and receive help; that i seemed to be having a severe allergic reaction to a medication, the Doctor on call failed to return my call. Protocol dictates that a client DOES RECEIVE A CALL BACK, but there had been a breach in protocol. When i called the local emergency room, they said they were really busy and suggested that i call Ask-A-Nurse, who then referred me….
    I was appalled and terrified. I’d rather not divulge too much. The statute of limitations might be running out for me. I was told by a lawyer that i had 2 years to sue. I have until September 2015 if that’s the case. I’ve never sued anyone in my life; I’d rather work things out in person. I get better, i get worse, i get better, i get worse. Overall, my lifestyle has changed dramatically. I haven’t worked since the side effects have rendered me in great pain and the meds that treat both the pain and the akathesia put me to sleep.
