Hi. Before I answer, how long have you been on the Latuda and what exactly is your libido problem?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I have been on latuda for 3 weeks. my problem is that i am unable to maintain or achieve good erections and orgasms are poor.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK Paul--and before you started the Latuda there was no problem at all?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes i was on risperidone and having the same problem and that was why risperidone was stopped.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK Paul--have you had any studies to see if the problem is purely from the medication?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No i havent but the problem started at the time when i started taking risperidone and it is a bit better now on latuda

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK Paul--if it's better--even a little bit--on the Latuda, then the problem may resolve itself in about another month or two. I can't say for sure here--only time will tell
