Dear Rabbi Dr. Price,

My psychiatrist had recently suggested that I change from around 15 - 20 mg latuda to either Saphrus or Invega
Is there any reason to assume that these medications should work better than latuda
My symptoms include getting agitated and not feeling safe while driving or staying alone in the house

Thank you,

Mench

Latuda may be more activating, causing more agitation, than Saphris or Invega. Latuda is better for depression.

Rexulti or Vraylar may be superior to Latuda for concentration.
