2 months I went to my regular monthly psychiatric visit and my doctor gave me a box of pills, to try. I took them home and read the info in the box. It said the pill (Latuda) was only tested on patients with schizophrenia. I am not schizophrenic, have never exhibited any of those symptoms. I did not take them. I went back to see him last month, he asked me if I was taking the new medication, I said no. I thoroughly explained what I had read and saw about it on the internet and said “I do not have schizophrenia”… long story short, he re-prescribed them to me, told me to take them and let him know how I feel next month. I have been taking it and do not notice any “changes”…. He also claims they are for BOTH schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Should I be taking this medication, trusting the doctor, or am I crazy for actually ingesting this pill?
