Staying on LATUDA

The Importance of Sticking with Treatment

Medications like Latuda® (lurasidone HCl) tend to work gradually, so it may take some time for you to notice your symptoms improve. That’s why it’s so important to take LATUDA exactly as prescribed, and to not stop taking it without speaking to your health care provider—even if you aren’t experiencing symptoms.

Sunovion Answers for LATUDA offers patient assistance to support you along the way. Learn more about how to get continued support.

How Do You Stay Motivated to Continue Your Treatment Plan?

Discussing Side Effects with Your Doctor

Anytime you’re prescribed a medication you haven’t taken before, make sure your doctor explains what you can expect—both the typical benefits and the possible side effects. Everyone reacts differently, and the dosage your doctor starts you on may need to be adjusted after you’ve been on the medication for a while.

What to Do if You Think You’re Experiencing Side Effects

Have you ever wondered, “Could what I’m feeling be a side effect of my medication?” If you think you may be experiencing side effects of your medication, don’t attempt to cut down your dose on your own or stop taking your medication.

Call your doctor right away and explain in detail what you are experiencing so they can tell you what to do.

Always call your doctor if you have questions about your medication or your dosing.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1‑800‑FDA‑1088.
