How does Latuda work?
Latuda is an atypical antipsychotic drug, and contains the active ingredient Lurasidone. The Lurasidone dosage in the medication works by balancing brain chemicals called neurotransmitters. Brain chemicals such as dopamine and serotonin in particular can have an impact on moods. Dopamine is the “focus” neurotransmitter that helps us to remember where we put things, what we just read, and remain on task without our mind wandering off and daydreaming. Serotonin is necessary for stabilizing our moods, regulating our sleep cycle, and pain control to name a few of its functions.

Swallow the tablets whole; do not break, crush, or chew them. Latuda (Lurasidone) can be administered with or without a meal.
