Speak w/ your Dr.: I am not sure what dose of Latuda (lurasidone) you are taking, but it may have to be raised if you are not experiencing a response after an adequate duration of a month or longer. Tegretol speeds up the metabolism of Lamictal and lowers its levels. You may experience more dizziness, blurry or double vision and unsteady gait with the combination.
