Latuda (lurasidone) is an antipsychotic prescribed to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are both complex mental illnesses, probably related to the amount of neurotransmitters (chemicals that allow nerves to communicate) present in the brain. Latuda works by changing the levels of these neurotransmitters.
