Re: new medications for schizophrenia

Maybe you would get more responses if you put this under either mental health issues or the Schizoprenia topic. There are so many new meds. coming out often for many illnesses so someone may know of something.

Good luck...JJ....

My girlfriend was prescribed Saphris. It is a very new drug and seems to work for most, and fairly quickly. It all depends on the severity of your symptoms.

I take Abilify -- this is considered to be fairly new (it hasn't been copied yet or so my doctor tells me!).

Re: new medications for schizophrenia

Latuda. I just started a month ago on 40 mg, and my doctor increased it to 80. But it doesn't seem to work well with Depokate. I don't want to take the Depokate anymore. I'm trying to get my Doctor to stop the Depokate. I was hoping the Latuda would calm the "voices" down, but I'm a little discouraged now because it hasn't yet, and it might never happen. I also have a therapist finally. She set up an appointment for me to get my resume updated and to get a job, and I've been so stressed and in a panic about it. I'm not lazy, just afraid of being unable to hold the job. It's been 9 years since I've have been unemployed. My aunt says it is just fear, but I DO hear voices and see things! :-(
