Latuda and Pregnancy

Effects of Latuda on Labor and Delivery

Other antipsychotic medications have been reported to cause problems in the newborn when the medication was taken during the third trimester. These problems can include:
 
  • Agitation
  • Tense muscle tone or, conversely, "floppy" muscle tone
  • Shakiness
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Feeding problems.
     
The severity of such problems has varied, with some cases being quite minor, while others required extended hospitalization. Because Latuda is an antipsychotic medication, the same problems reported with other antipsychotics might occur during treatment.
 

Final Thoughts

If you are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant while taking Latuda, let your healthcare provider know. He or she will consider both the benefits and risks before making a recommendation in your particular situation.
