Customer Question

hi! I have latuda nausea.. I was wondering how long the effects of this will last. I just started the medication 5-6 days ago.
JA: OK. The Psychologist will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Psychologist can help you best.
Customer: Ok. I suffer from schizophrenia, endured hallucinations--seeing weird shadow things, and undergoing paranoia and fear. I was hospitalized and put on different medications. Found that olanzapine at a very small dose was effective in helping to numb out the unusual thoughts. But, I lost touch with my cognitive abilities and emotional depth, that I'm only hoping that this Latuda, 3rd generation medication, can help with.
JA: When you start doubting if you are seeing the world in the same way as everyone else it's time to talk to out Expert - or go live on a desert island. Is there anything else important you think the Psychologist should know?
Customer: I think that is very helpful and idyllic, but I am a masters student right now and the sickness is slowing me down and I have to keep up the pace with the other students.
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Psychologist about your situation and connect you two.

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. I am very sorry that you are experiencing nausea related to the Latuda, typically this will only last around 4-6 weeks as your body adjusts to the medication. If the nausea is very debilitating than you can ask your doctor about taking an anti-nausea medication like Zofran, or even a benzodiazepine like Ativan or Clonazepam as these can lessen the nausea for you until your body fully adjusts to the Latuda.

Hi, can you instruct me on how to be reimbursed for my funds. It said there was a $5 dollar conditional fee. My account is saying that I am charged $26 dollars, this was not part of the agreement nor am I satisfied with the response, though decently helpful, not helpful in terms of what I'm looking for. I am asking for a full refund.

I am sorry that you were not satisfied with my answer. You can contact customer service directly and they will help you with a refund.
