I just saw a psychiatrist at the Same-Day Psychiatry Clinic. He wants me to increase my Latuda from 60mg to 80mg, for 5 days, then increase to 100mg.
If my cervical dystonia (movement disorder caused by long-term AP use) gets worse, because of the increase, or if I have any other terrible side effects, he wants me to go back down to 60mg and consider trying Clozapine.
I would need to work with my main/current psychiatrist to get a referral to a different psychiatrist who is certified to treat with Clozapine. That would make me very sad, though, because I love my current psychiatrist. She’s a great psychiatrist & great person.
Anyway, so I’m going to take 80mg of Latuda, tonight. Wish me luck.
