Just wondering if it’s the meds. I have no future and don’t really want to live life anymore. I’m only 25 but I can’t see myself lying in bed just feeling agitated every day for the next 25 years. Too beat up to get a job. I lived a good life up till now.
I had a great 24 years myself. Been sick since 01, with sza. I dated tons of women traveled the world, went to good schools, had lots of friends.
It’s been a real blow coming to terms with this illness.
Latuda, I take it too. And I cannot function, but no of them are any good. Geodon was worse. Latuda makes you feel pretty shitty though I agree.
As soon as I started Latuda back in November, I was immediately suicidal and it continued throughout the treatment. Am now on Abilify and immediately the SU/SI feelings stopped. I feel so much better already, however not 75% or better.
Suicidal thoughts can be a side effect of most psychiatric medications, unfortunately. Report them to your doctor immediately. They can decide whether to adjust your dose, change your medication, or just monitor you to see if it gets worse. I had suicidal thoughts on Depakote, but they immediately went away when I changed to a different medication.
I’m not dramatic about it or anything, but the will to live just isn’t there. No satisfying relationship, no friends, no job. The one thing keeping me going is how much I love my mom. I love living with her, but once she’s gone…idk. Just don’t want to live anymore. Maybe moving back to live with relatives can help.
Latuda gave me suicidal thoughts but it was because the akesthesia was so bad.
I’ve had many time periods where I felt I couldn’t do it anymore, resign myself to a life of suffering. But then things would improve for me and I’d be really glad I didn’t try anything. Like right now I’m more stable then I’ve been in years. Don’t throw the towel in yet, basically.
I say please hang in there. You never know what the future holds. Just because life is hard now doesn’t mean it always will be. I have been suicidal many times and even attempted suicide a couple times, and I am glad I am still here. New meds and treatments may come out that help you. Don’t give up the fight. You’re a valuable person and the world needs you.
the thought of taking latuda makes me want to commit suicide.
hmm, better meds please
Definitely the meds. Suffering with suicidal thoughts now and I don’t feel like doing anything. I tell my pdoc but nothing. Everything is like shutting down and I just feel like crap. Going to my previous pdoc even if I do have to pay to see her.
Latuda is rough stuff, but what are the alternatives?
That’s also True.
I have these thoughts too after I take Latuda but I take it at night and sleep right through it and when I wake up they are gone.
There is a wide variety of med’s. Maybe you could try a different one. When I was on Latuda I was angry all the time, but I didn’t know if it was the new med or withdrawal from my old med, Geodon. Personally, I’ve been doing pretty good on Geodon and Seroquel, Maybe you can find med’s that work for you.
As soon as I stopped the Latuda I felt better overall and with my thoughts. Started on Abilify and doing better. I only cry once in a while and haven’t thought of SU in 2 weeks.
Thanks I just got rejected from a relationship and couldn’t handle it. Trying to move on now.
Being dumped is a very difficult experience. It’s not strange that you are feeling hopeless and dejected. If you’ve been dumped before, you already know it will get better. If not, I’m telling you now that it definitely will.
