Weaning off my other meds and starting Latuda. Do you have to take it with supper? Does it make you sleepy?

Thanks.

Hi MA10,

Usually they recommend that you take Latuda is taken with food as food can help your body absorb the medicine. However, be sure to ask your doctor and they would be the best person to advise you.

From reading about Latuda, it states that it can cause drowsiness until your body gets use to it.

Thanks for the info. I kinda wished it would have made me drowsy last night. Ha. Insomnia is awful.

Ohhh. I guess it will take time for your body to get use to it.

I hope this med will help you.
