@Woichneigewesenbin that is the kind of thing i am worried about. I am hoping if its gonna have that kind of effect on me that it does happen right away so i can call my doctor and tell her i want off off ot before its in my system too much. I dont trust these drugs and all their side effects. Honestly... Even though i still have to deal with symptoms, I find them to simply be more managable if i simply just smoke weed. A little in the morning when i wake up and then when i get home from work and before bed. But doing that legally can bankrupt a person. And again... It helps make things more manageable... Doesnt make the problems go away. But the pills the dr gives me dont make the problems go away either... And the side effects sometimes are worse than the illness itself. Im just scared to try this... I guess I am just hoping someone out there can say it has helped them so I can at least have a ray of hope...

@mrskhan -Latuda is a really useful medication. Really! You can have a reaction to anything, even aspirin. Or milk! Not trusting medication is like not trusting food. What works for one person might not work for another. And of course some are more risky than others. If you are having symptoms, try something! The potential side effects will quite definitely not kill you. They're just unpleasant. And you call your doctor and try something different. My doctor called in a prescription for a tiny bit of an antianxiety medication. I took one pill, was a little tired that afternoon, and was entirely fine after that. About weed..I don't believe the popular hype that it cures nearly everything. It does have risks and side effects, and you should consider the legal issue as like a "side effect". That said, I've had quite a few patients and acquaintances who find it very helpful for a variety of symptoms. But your doctors need to know, for your safety.
