Med induced insomnia

I've been taking latuda at night and about 2 or 3 hours after I take I my body feels tired but my mind doesn't shut off. I start thinking really depressed thoughts. They really scare me because they are kinda suicidal. But when I wake up in the morning I feel fine and if I forget a dose I don't feel that way. Anyone else experience this? Does it go away eventually? Other than that it is working really well for me so if there is hope for it to go away ill wait it out. Thanks!

   There could be any number of causes. Some medications have a certain half life meaning they work only for a specific period of time. Also antipsychotics can cause temporary movement disorders such as akathesia that can create a sense of inner tension and sometimes mental changes. This can be treated with a side effect pill within a psychiatrist's clinical discretion. This did happen to me with other antipsychotics and my psychiatrist explained this to me. There could be other causes as well. All of this would be worthwhile to discuss with your psychiatrist and they could make an appropriate follow up decision within their professional judgment.
