I know a lot of people with SZ/A smoke so wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if it will last (not just temporary).
It seems like Latuda is making my nicotine withdrawal/cravings go down considerably. I experienced this with Zyprexa also but was only on it for a short while and still smoked out of habit while I was on it. Now I really want to quit, but nicotine withdrawal turns me into a miserable monster to put it very lightly.
Maybe it is the combination of Latuda and then the beta blocker which is keeping my blood pressure down, not sure.
Today I went without a cigarette for roughly 8 hours and did not get withdrawal symptoms like I usually would (agitation, restless, sweating, nausea, horrible feeling like my cells are on fire). Still as a compulsion I asked for cigarette money and went to the store, then smoked one. I felt nothing.
This might be my chance to quit. Has anyone else experienced loss of nicotine dependency on Latuda or other AP?
