How do I apply for the Latuda patient assistance program? 

Prescription Care makes it easy to apply for the Latuda patient assistance program. All you need to do is fill in our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you’re taking, including Latuda, and the details of your healthcare provider, insurance, and household income. This is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you will be eligible for assistance, we will handle the full application process and we’ll help to enroll you in the Latuda patient assistance program. Once enrolled, we will also request your Latuda medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year.

Is Prescription Care a Latuda coupon provider?

Prescription Care is not a Latuda coupon, a Latuda discount card, or a Latuda copay card. We don’t offer printable Latuda manufacturer coupons, Latuda discounts, rebates, Latuda savings cards, trial offers, or free Latuda samples.

We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Latuda patient assistance program. If you’re looking for coupons for Latuda or cheap Latuda, you will likely save more with Prescription Care. When obtaining your Latuda medication through us, your total cost for the medication will always be $49 per month.

Can Prescription Care help me get Latuda if I have insurance?

We may be able to help even if your insurance company won’t pay for your Latuda medication, you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility, or even if you don’t have insurance.

How much is Latuda with insurance?

The cost of Latuda will vary by the healthcare plan. Your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance. Remember, if you’re approved for assistance, you’ll likely save more if you get your Latuda medication through Prescription Care.

How much is Latuda without insurance?

Latuda prices without insurance will vary depending on where you buy it, the number of tablets per pack, and the strength of the tablets. You can expect to pay around $1,500 for a month’s supply of 30, 40mg tablets. With Prescription Care you’ll always pay a flat monthly fee of $49.

What is Latuda?

Latuda is a medication that belongs to a group of drugs called antipsychotics. It is used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in adults. It’s a central nervous system depressant, which means it reduces activity in parts of the brain. This reduced activity helps to ease the symptoms of both conditions. 

Schizophrenia is a mental disorder that causes episodes of psychosis. In these periods you may see or hear things that aren’t really there, have delusional thoughts, and become unusually suspicious. Other symptoms can include difficulties thinking, social withdrawal, and a lack of motivation. Schizophrenia is thought to be caused by a mixture of genetics and events in your life. 

Bipolar disorder, previously called manic depression, is another mental disorder. It causes periods of both depression and elevated mood. During the episodes of elevated mood, you may experience psychosis too, as well as excess energy and impulsive behavior. Bipolar disorder is also thought to be caused by both genetics and life events.

Latuda active ingredients

The active ingredient in Latuda is called lurasidone. Lurasidone is swallowed as a tablet. Once swallowed, it’s absorbed into your bloodstream, where it travels to your brain.

Having passed the blood-brain barrier, lurasidone attaches itself to areas on your neurons called receptors. This blocks the receptors and stops them from receiving signals from other neurons passed by chemicals called dopamine and serotonin. Communication between your neurons is reduced, helping to normalize brain activity, and improving the symptoms of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Latuda side effects & Latuda drug interactions

As with other medications, Latuda can cause side effects. Not everyone will experience side effects though or get the same ones if they do. The most likely side effects caused by Latuda include sleepiness, restlessness, dizziness, speech problems, unusual muscle movements, nausea and vomiting, and insomnia. In rarer cases, Latuda can cause more serious side effects, like seizures, kidney failure, blood clots, and breakdown of muscle tissue.

This isn’t a full list of all the side effects that Latuda can cause. For more details see the patient leaflet that comes with your medication. If you have any concerns about Latuda side effects, talk to your physician or a pharmacist. 

Some of the side effects Latuda can cause may interfere with your ability to drive or use machinery. You should try to avoid driving or using machinery until you know how Latuda affects you.

Latuda and other medications can interact. This can affect how Latuda and the other medications work and can make side effects more likely. Tell your prescribing physician about all drugs you’re taking, including vitamins and dietary supplements. In particular, tell them if you’re taking:

  • Medicines for fungal infections, like itraconazole or ketoconazole
  • Any antibiotics
  • Medicines to treat HIV
  • Boceprevir or telaprevir for chronic hepatitis
  • Nefazodone for depression
  • Rifampicin for tuberculosis 
  • Carbamazepine, phenobarbital, and phenytoin for seizures
  • Antidepressants or other medications that affect your brain
  • Medicines that lower blood pressure
  • Medicines containing ergot alkaloid derivatives (used for treating migraines)
  • Aprepitant to treat nausea and vomiting
  • Prednisone to treat inflammatory disease
  • Rufinamide to treat seizures
  • St John’s wort
