Latuda
has anyone listened to the commercials for this drug?Gasp

the list of what could go wrong (side effects)-- a few mentioned death, is much more scary than the problem.

RE: Latuda
SNL did a bit several years ago -- for some fictitious drug (maybe Fukitol) that had a side effect listing over 2 minutes long.

Some people didn't get it.....

Sad, eh??

This is an antipsychotic medication used by people with schizophrenia or bipolar disorders but they've also found it to be helpful for depression. If you're schizophrenic or bipolar the side effects of the drug are not as disabling as those brain disorders. At one time it was tried on people with alzheimers and this did cause death.

When they test these drugs on people before being oked, any possible side effect is noted even if the person sneezes. With antipsychotics they put them through several phases of testing. I think it's 4 phases but it could be 5.

Trying to make an antipsychotic drug with no side effects has been the goal of scientists for decades. Maybe with the mapping the brain project they will be able to finally achieve it. I hope so.

Yeah, I remember you suffer from depression. My daughter was on Latuda for depression before she transitioned (she's transgender). She was deeply depressed. The Latuda was ok but it made her throw up sometimes. It didn't knock her out asleep for hours like some other antipsychotics did. After she transitioned she stopped taking Latuda and just takes hormones now. She's super happy.

From what I understand depression is a balancing act between the serotonin and other brain chemicals.

Fuck it then. I take an atypical antipsychotic called Seroquel precisely because it does knock my ass out.

Witch doctors almost killed my ass with an SSRI. Turns out 95% of your serotonin is in your gut. My gut didn't appreciate the extra and it essentially poisoned me. Now I dick with my dopamine instead. I like dopamine. Serotonin, not so much.

If something goes wrong with a persons' ability to utilise sufficient amounts of dopamine and serotonin (and perhaps norepinephrine), depression is a likely result.

Due to this, most anti-depression meds work by manipulating the nuerotransmitters. Either by delaying re-uptake of the transmitters from the synapse (leading to heightened feelings of happiness due to the extended period of time the molecules are causing synapse to fire) or by forcing the release of more of the chemical. Which levels things out against the lack from before.

Too much can of course have some really bad effects...
