Latuda is a drug used to treat certain types of depression. Latuda 10mg tablets are taken once daily, in the morning when starting treatment with this medicine. The dose can be adjusted according to how you feel and what your doctor recommends. It’s important that you take latuda exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible but don’t double up on doses, unless otherwise directed by your doctor or pharmacist. Never use two doses at the same time unless directed by your doctor or health care professional. There may be times when taking latuda causes mild side effects such as nausea/vomiting/diarrhoea (especially during the first week of treatment), headache, dizziness and tiredness – if these continue for more than one day(s) see a medical professional immediately because they could indicate a serious reaction called neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS).
