Still checking on you spider. :-)) Hope all is well.
Hey spider. It's me again checking on you. I hope you are doing okay. I don't know why I keep coming back to this thread but I just find myself wondering how you are doing.
Hi spider! I wanted to see how you are doing? I am still wondering if lithium would be a fit for you. Also, something that we did with my son which I think is a game changer with medication is that we did a genesite test. Our insurance covered it and they have options if you don't have insurance. But it was pretty revealing for my son. It looks at how you metabolize medications, all medications and helps a doctor guide you. We found out that my son, for example, tested positive the gene mutation that doesn't allow him to metabolize folic acid. So he is deficient in folate. Folate is involved in serotonin, norepinphrine and dopamine receptors. He now takes a prescription methylized folate. By increasing those receptors, medication is supposed to work better. And ketamine treatment is another option. Anyway, was just thinking of you and wanted to see how it is going.
I have a new question the Latuda I’m no longer on but I am taking Trintelex now and I was wondering if anybody had any experience with that
I have been seeing ads about the negative results of Latuda and wonder why it's still on the market. My 50-+ daughter was given the drug some years ago for bipolarism and now has Parkinson's or tardive dyskinesia - which is permanent! Her hands shake uncontrollably and she can hardly walk for the weakness in her legs.
Hey there spider. How is it going?! So, latuda. The first thing I can tell you is that you should communicate any side effects to your doctor. They may work on dosing or he/she may have pointers for you. You are taking this after a meal or snack? Important to do so. Common side effects do include stomach issues, unfortunately. Since there is a range of doses, do they start slow and titrate you up? How long have you been taking it?
