Death by "Bipolar"

     Sometimes my wife and I briefly distract ourselves with the garbage on TV after putting our 2 year-old to bed, and every time we do, I see this shameless ad for a new dangerous and lethal anti-psychotic drug, latuda, for treating "bipolar", originally approved for treating schizophrenia.

     It is estimated that at least 70% of people are misdiagnosed with bipolar, though perhaps it is closer to 100%, as bipolar is largely a hoax. So the psychopaths at Sunovion, a subsidiary of Japanese-based parent company, Dainippon Sumitomo Pharma, are advertising this drug to people with bipolar - 100% of whom may not have any semblance of bipolar. But hey, it's always good to take a powerful anti-psychotic drug used to treat severe schizophrenia when you're feeling a little depressed.

     Even worse, as the entire field of psychiatry becomes infected by corruption, moral decay, and a total lack of insight, psychiatrists (also often psychopaths, or at least complete narcissists), are promoting and prescribing this and countless other psychotropic drugs they know nothing about purely for financial incentive, and of course, out of sheer laziness. So we may end up with millions of people taking this drug and at risk for death, suicide, psychotic break, permanent uncontrollable body movements such as tongue protrusion, permanent brain damage, permanent muscle and organ damage, loading up and taking out a movie theatre or an elementary school, or maybe drowning all of your children systematically.

     Worst of all, our government is in bed with these guys, same as all of the corporate elite, approving this drug and providing subsidies to the company with our tax dollars. Our dirty, brain dead, moral degenerates in government clearly want people to be heavily medicated, as the more numb and stupid we are, the more they can continue to lie to us and suck us dry like the machine tentacles in The Matrix. So please, dear sheeple, please start thinking, acting and making decisions for yourselves. Please don't let drug companies and the idiots in government tell you what's good for you. Please start taking control of your own mind, your own body, your own mental and spiritual health... your own life.

     This is taken directly from the latuda website, and um, I think I'd rather have "bipolar", or just shoot myself in the fucking head. Bear in mind that some of the most extraordinary works of art, music, theatre and film the world has ever seen were created by geniuses supposedly "suffering" from "hypomania". Please also bear in mind this is just a partial list of side effects for a drug that ensures you don't create anything, ever:

INCREASED MORTALITY IN ELDERLY PATIENTS WITH DEMENTIA-RELATED PSYCHOSIS; AND SUICIDAL THOUGHTS AND BEHAVIORS
Elderly patients with dementia-related psychosis (having lost touch with reality due to confusion and memory loss) treated with this type of medicine are at an increased risk of death compared to patients receiving placebo (sugar pill). LATUDA is not approved for treating elderly patients with dementia-related psychosis.
Antidepressants have increased the risk of suicidal thoughts and actions in some children, teenagers, and young adults. Patients of all ages starting treatment should be watched closely for worsening of depression, suicidal thoughts or actions, unusual changes in behavior, agitation, and irritability. Patients, families, and caregivers should pay close attention to any changes, especially sudden changes in mood, behaviors, thoughts, or feelings. This is very important when an antidepressant medicine is started or when the dose is changed. Report any change in these symptoms immediately to the doctor. LATUDA is not approved for patients under the age of 18 years.
LATUDA can cause serious side effects, including stroke that can lead to death, which can happen in elderly people with dementia who take medicines like LATUDA.
Neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS) is a rare but very serious condition that can happen in people who take antipsychotic medicines, including LATUDA. NMS can cause death and must be treated in a hospital. Call your healthcare provider right away if you become severely ill and have some or all of these symptoms: high fever, excessive sweating, rigid muscles, confusion, or changes in your breathing, heartbeat, or blood pressure.
Tardive dyskinesia (TD) is a serious and sometimes permanent side effect reported with LATUDA and similar medicines. Tell your doctor about any movements you cannot control in your face, tongue, or other body parts, as they may be signs of TD. TD may not go away, even if you stop taking LATUDA. TD may also start after you stop taking LATUDA.
Increases in blood sugar can happen in some people who take LATUDA. Extremely high blood sugar can lead to coma or death. If you have diabetes or risk factors for diabetes (such as being overweight or a family history of diabetes), your healthcare provider should check your blood sugar before you start LATUDA and during therapy. Call your healthcare provider if you have any of these symptoms of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) while taking LATUDA: feel very thirsty, need to urinate more than usual, feel very hungry, feel weak or tired, feel sick to your stomach, feel confused, or your breath smells fruity.
Increases in triglycerides and LDL (bad) cholesterol and decreases in HDL (good) cholesterol have been reported with LATUDA. You may not have any symptoms, so your healthcare provider may decide to check your cholesterol and triglycerides during your treatment with LATUDA.
Some patients may gain weight while taking LATUDA. Your doctor should check your weight regularly.
Tell your doctor if you experience any of these:
  • feeling dizzy or light-headed upon standing,
  • decreases in white blood cells (which can be fatal),
  • trouble swallowing.
LATUDA and medicines like it may raise the level of prolactin. Tell your healthcare provider if you experience a lack of menstrual periods, leaking or enlarged breasts, or impotence.
Tell your healthcare provider if you have a seizure disorder, have had seizures in the past, or have conditions that increase your risk for seizures.
Tell your healthcare provider if you experience prolonged, abnormal muscle spasms or contractions, which may be a sign of a condition called dystonia.
LATUDA can affect your judgment, thinking, and motor skills. You should not drive or operate hazardous machinery until you know how LATUDA affects you.
LATUDA may make you more sensitive to heat. You may have trouble cooling off. Be careful when exercising or when doing things likely to cause dehydration or make you warm.
Avoid eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while you take LATUDA since these can affect the amount of LATUDA in the blood.
Tell your healthcare provider about all prescription and over-the-counter medicines you are taking or plan to take, since there are some risks for drug interactions with LATUDA. Tell your healthcare provider if you are allergic to any of the ingredients of LATUDA or take certain medications called CYP3A4 inhibitors or inducers. Ask your healthcare provider if you are not sure if you are taking any of these medications.
Avoid drinking alcohol while taking LATUDA.
Tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or if you are planning to get pregnant. Avoid breastfeeding while taking LATUDA.
The most common side effects of LATUDA include sleepiness or drowsiness; restlessness or feeling like you need to move around (akathisia); difficulty moving, slow movements, muscle stiffness, or tremor; and nausea.
These are not all the possible side effects of LATUDA. For more information, ask your healthcare
provider or pharmacist.

  1. My son was 20 years old when doctor prescribe him latuda.

    He was normal, very well behaved boy. It was nightmare to live with him after latuda. This medication should be ban . My son start act like complete manic, idiot etc. His personality complete flip I didn't t know what to do . I went to the doctor for help . She double latuda dose. It was impossible to live with him. He ended in the hospital. It took 2-3 times hospital stay, until we fined medication to undue latuda effect. I suspect my son don't have bipolar. It is doctor make up diagnosis to make people sick.

  2. Wow, bipolar exists. First of all, almost none of your info is correct! Latuda is a mood stabilizer, not an anti-psychotic and although it is dangerous, it also helps many bipolar people such as me control their moods. I know the difference BC I've been on both. Just stop this nonsense, you don't know what you're talking about...

    1. Generally such an accusation would precede a fact...

      Sorry.

      But hey, thanks for chiming in, and please be careful with the meds, Alex. You may also want to check your facts before publishing a comment ;-)

    2. P.S. Alex, do me a favor... should you suddenly decide to stop taking your psychotropics, if you could stay away from my kid's school that'd be great.

    1. I have been on meds since 1988, and latuda is by far the best thing that's ever happened to me. I am truly happy for the first time in my life and what the rest of you consider "normal." You are entitled to your opinions, and Im entitled to mine. All I can say is all of you should be thankful I take this.

  4. Obviously not a safe place for people who are taking medication to give feedback, but instead of arguing jargon ascertaining the point, which is what the drug is being prescribed to do, as defined here as what it replaces- which was experienced as quite negative, and referred to as the competing "mood stabilizer".

    I have argued that the black box warning is being missapplied because the use of the medication should in fact matter, as it determines the amount. Antipsychotics would be dangerous in large part because they are given in greater doses by people in nursing homes etc. at a low level to respond to day to day perceived need.

    Latuda when used for bipolar 'curing' is at it's lowest dosage range. THe risk of NOT using it because the competing treatments are far worse is the reason the warning causes a problem as it, and this I can speak to, is making geriatric patients who have gone without care after bad experiences half a century ago perhaps or more with what it have a hard time getting it for example as an impatient after a suicide attempt, meaning they get released without any ongoing medication, meaning depression is likely, and I know has now occured.

    Malpractice however is defined as below the standard of care. Heroically however to the slightest degree failing to act is hard to show as malpractice apparently. I disagree with this. When someone dies because such a warning is the reason to not intervene it might be criminally reckless or worse, not merely 'malpractice.'

    Obviously the boxed warning remains to this day. The market is not primarily geriatric for this drug. Although insured, the insurance is no likely to pay much, so seniors, who are not employed at least, have a hard time getting cures.

    Finally a man who stigmatizes those getting relief from science, makes doing so shameful, and gets happy increasing the chances of more, not less, shootings, by venting in such infantile fashion.

    The shootings occur because of the false association between them and those who get treatment, or are even ill.

    The shootings occur because not just shooters shoot, but because we do not effectively police those actually at risk, or the tools etc. used to kill those born, raised, and murdered in a single presidency.

    The murderers are to blame and those who hate them idiotically are to blame as well. It does not take a village of idiots, but only enough, for the innocent to suffer incomprehensible violence. Latuda clearly has incredible profit potential, but it also to me has had great promise for those who need more then standard historical "stabilization" as they note is more suffered then enjoyed. A drug that is preferred, a drug that people want to take, is a drug that will save the takers of it and otherwise lives if the premise has any validity at all that bipolar people off meds are more at risk then healthy otherwise to so shoot.

    Anyone would be hurt to be considered at risk of being such a person. It is not fair to pick on those just sick, to paint them as so evil without actual evidence or reasonable cause.

    Not everyone is smart enough to understand this perhaps, but I have taken the time in case anyone teachable reads this.

    Better meds can save lives. Better treatment of all sorts of those needing meds is protective, hating those getting help creates more who need help but won't get it.

    Mainly though caring about consent is the only way to stop these crimes ultimately. As long as force is the primary way to provide lesser cures they will remain far from as excellent as actual consenting customer's must demand.
