Anyone tried both? Which one was better and why?
Well, tough one. Both were somewhat effective but not completely.
Risperidone: No sex drive, couldn’t get out of the bed, etc…
Latuda: Intense hunger, tiredness, sedation
I would pick Risperidone as the worst one, really.
I am thinking of trying 60mg Latuda with 2mg Risperidone.
Seems like a good move. If it doesn’t work, try something else with 2 mgs Risperidone.
Yea on 120mg Latuda I had extreme akathisia, 60mg shouldn’t cause a bad akathisia.
I was thinking about 60mg or 80mg Geodon with 2mg Risperidone but I need a new Dr who is willing to prescribe Geodon.
Yes, you could try many things, including Rexulti and Abilify at a lower dose. Seems like this may work,.
These are risky for me. I don’t want Abilify side effects.
Got it. Then keep trying other stuff with 2 mgs Risperidone.
Can Geodon cause akathisia like Latuda?
It is possible.
You shouldn’t really fear the side effects. If they happen, then you can change the med.
Honestly, they both sucked for me.
Risperdal cause of the negatives.
Latuda cause of the side effects. Rashes, vomiting, TD… yet they kept me on in cause it improved negatives and lessened positives.
