My daughter switched over to Latuda about two weeks ago and it has made a HUGE difference for her. I am starting to see signs of her old self come back.
One of the earliest symptoms of schizophrenia was that she stopped reading books. She was a voracious reader before (reading 2 or 3 books a week), and she hadn’t read a book in almost two years. But three days ago, she pulled a book off the shelf and read it in two days. She was ecstatic! I don’t know when the last time was that I saw her so happy. Probably before she got sick.
It makes this mama’s heart glad to see a real smile from her after so long. I forgot how much I missed it.
