Hello, Angel! How are you feeling? I am sorry that you're suffering depression, that's very tough to deal with.

The Latuda is an atypical antipsychotic, so it is very similar to the Haldol that you already take.

The Cymbalta is an SNRI antidepressant, so it's related to the Zoloft, though not the same.

Were these suggestions made by your doctor? Because, I'm not sure they'll prescribe either, since they are so similar to ones you already take and that can create some risks, such as Serotonin Syndrome.

hello, I went to see my pdoc and he told me to start latuda at 20mg and stop haldol. I wanted something that would help bring me out of a "funk" so I suggested adding cymbalta instead of something that would bring me down. but he did mention that since I had ticks with abilify that I probably will with latuda.

Get off the Haldol and Klonopin. Both are very old medicine. Latuda has lifted my depression extremely. Used to sleep 12 hours a day for 3 years. Have been taking latuda for 1 month. Very pleased completely different outlook. Everyone is different but beware. I find Buspar works great for the panic attacks. and i take wellbutrin for depression. The latuda has helped my binge eating immensely. Try Geodon if Latuda does not work also a good all in one bipolar schizo medicine. I have it all so i have been thru a lot. Latuda allows me to sleep well too which I was very worried about. Every one is different so use caution and keep close tabs on yourself. To people like me an ordinary day seems like heaven and I have had many more of those on lamictal.
