Latuda (Lurasidone HCl) with weed?

I just got prescribed latuda for bipolar disorder by my doctor, but haven't asked him yet whether or not smoking pot is a bad idea on it and wanted to see if anyone here knows if there is a contraindication! Any information, whether literature based or experience based is welcome! Also, when I ask whether or not there is a contraindication, I mean between pot and latuda, not its effects with bipolar disorder. Thanks!

Re: Latuda (Lurasidone HCl) with weed?

I took Latuda for about a year for schizophrenia before my doctor decided to change my prescription. I always smoked weed while on it and saw no impact on the medication's effects as far as helping my schizophrenia. I know you know that Bipolar Disorder is quite a bit different, but you asked about the medication. I hope I helped you.

Hey-
My name is Miriam and I take latuda and lamictal for bipolar disorder and mild schizophrenia. I would not recommend smoking pot on latuda, it may lead to a manic episode or plunge you into depression. I started taking latuda a few weeks ago and after finally feeling relief from crippling depression, I smoked a little with a friend from work and felt horrible. The weed interacting with my medications alongside my low tolerance got me way too high and I felt like shit. I don't plan on smoking again, I don't want to relapse and end up in a hospital.

Re: Latuda (Lurasidone HCl) with weed?

Thanks for your responses! I ended up getting off latuda after a few days because it gave me a lot of anxiety. Smoking pot doesn't give me manic episodes, I've smoked pot plenty since I've been diagnosed and it's fine. However I recently quit anyways because of the fact it just makes me tired and out of it all the time. But hopefully this thread will serve as a source of information regarding this topic.
