Mike's Struggle

The Story From A Broken Mind

My experience with Latuda / Clozaril (12/15/2013 to 1/1/14)

I am now on both Latuda (40mg) and Clozaril (100mg) both taken at night before bed. Well I take them both about two hours before bed.

Only down side I can feel are:

  • doped up feeling (should pass with time)
  • Hard to swallow
  • drooling at night
  • Shaky hands

My voices are at a lower volume, and my thoughts are slower.

***The hard to swallow thing sucks the worse. Dry foods seem to want to get stuck in my throat.

So the making me slepp 14 hours thing is hitting me pretty hard. I am trying to take both pills at dinner hoping I can wake up easier at 9:30am. The drooling thing has not gone away. I is kind of embarrassing to think about.
The hard to swallow is still the same I am just eating softer or moister foods.
Something new i noticed and add above is that my hands have gotten shaky. It is kind of sucks when I was pouring water into my bottle today.

Still feeling drained like tired. Still having swallowing issues. Still feel depressed.

Feeling depreased or down. Still drooling at night. And it may not be becausethe meds but I am drinking more or am thirsty more. I am also still finding it hard to swallow dry food.

Drooling and dry throat are the only real complaint I have. Other then the weekly blood work lol.

I am strating to think that the aching joints are a side effect of the clozaril.

I still have the drooling at night when I sleep, and the hard to swallow when eating dry foods. So I end up drinking more.
