Why do you have to take Latuda (lurasidone) with food? Will it work if you don't? Do you take the pill right before you eat then eat or what?

Absorption: There are several medications (like Latuda) that need food in the stomach to promote absorption - it needs to be at least 350 calories worth - the exact food is not important. Right after eating, during or just before are all okay but the food holds the drug long enough to not just pass on through and be wasted. It is true and important! Yes, you have it right!
