Latuda Withdrawal

Latuda Withdrawal

If you or a loved one is seeking to come off Latuda but are afraid to do so for fear of the horrific Latuda withdrawal symptoms, you owe it to yourself to find out about the tapering protocols used in the Alternative to Meds Center tapering program. 


Latuda withdrawal is similar in symptom characteristics to other "newer" or atypical antipsychotic medications. While doctors prescribe most drugs of this class for schizophrenia or psychoses, Latuda (generic name lurasidone) is also recommended by the drug makers for depression. Many doctors will prescribe an antidepressant for the "low" side of bipolar symptomology; however, doctors also now prescribe Latuda for the same reason. 

Since doctors prescribe Latuda to treat not only individuals suffering from schizophrenia and psychoses but also individuals suffering from depression, the potential market for this drug could be very large. Since psychiatric drugs often produce no significant improvement over time, and can even harm these individuals, many persons may decide that they just don't want to be on this drug anymore. Antipsychotic drugs like Latuda deaden a person's emotions across the spectrum, a result that has been called "a medical lobotomy" for good reason. 

Due to the significant changes the drug makes to the CNS, biochemistry and brain function, a drug like Latuda can most safely be withdrawn gradually, and with careful medical monitoring and support. Slow tapering helps to avoid an experience so painful that patients cannot endure it.  The Alternative to Meds Center tapers patients safely and gently during a Latuda tapering program. 

WARNING: Never abruptly stop taking Latuda, or any psychiatric medication as to do so can be life threatening.

Here is a summary of the withdrawal symptoms that can occur when coming off Latuda, especially when coming off too quickly or without proper preparation before and during the taper:  

  • psychosis
  • suicidal thoughts
  • racing thoughts
  • insomnia
  • flu like symptoms
  • heightened anxiety
  • deepened depression
  • nausea, vomiting
  • headaches
  • restlessness
  • sweating
  • confusion
  • loss of memory
  • tremors
  • mood swings
  • and much more.
