Word salad again :(

i’m having so much trouble speaking right now and we have friends over for the new year. they have innocently laughed and repeated things i’ve said as my verbal speech makes absolutely no sense right now but i feel embarrassed and want to retreat. writing this is taking so much concentration to remember the words. i did email my psychiatrist to see if she has a sooner appointment to up my aps. i just started latuda. anyone have any luck with this? i have schizoaffective disorder

Well, if it’s any consolation, your post on here seems clear and concise.


thank you. yes i am quite the perfectionist so i try to keep the writing clear.


You’re doing good on here. Hopefully you see your pdoc soon and they can best determine your treatment plan

Latuda 80mg wasn’t the best for me, had a bit of positive symptoms on it, akathisia, insomnia and nausea after taking the pill.

if you don’t mind me asking what are you on now that is helping better? latuda makes me quite nauseous as well

I am on 6mg Risperdal but have high prolactin due to it. Dr said not to worry. Abilify 20mg was great too.

I did that when I was at my worst. Zyprexa is the AP that works for me, I was on 7.5mg for a long time, recently changed to 5.0mg three months ago.

But yeah your writing is very clear!

The medications help. Practice also helps. Do you have a phone with a recording app? Practicing speaking and listening to yourself really helps you tune up your speaking ability.
