I am considering asking my pdoc to switch me to a new AP, since the one I am taking currently, Risperdal, seems to be causing me to space out and be unproductive. My previous pdoc prescribed me cross-titration to Latuda, but I was unable to start due to moving to a new city and therefore meeting a new pdoc.
Before sz/a, I had been diagnosed unspecified anxiety disorder and was taking an SSRI.
When I meet my pdoc, should I suggest the switch to Latuda? I have read reviews of the AP that indicate the worsening of anxiety. I do not want to ask him to give me a random AP, since I am trying to avoid weight gain and other side effects; Latuda seems to be less associated with weight gain and seems to be more pro-cognitive.
