I'm have been taking adder-all XR for 4 years at 50mg a day. I have devolved over the last year major depression extreme paranoia and high anxiety. I was reading about Latuda. I'm curious to know if this will help with my issues and not turn me into a zombie. The adder-all is fine.. The other problems are effecting my life badly. Someone help?

These sound like very serious problems. I think it would be better to speak to a health care professional about this and as soon as possible.

You say major depression extreme paranoia and high anxiety - and yet you say the adderall is fine? That's not right. Get to the psychiatrist pronto. I think there's something wrong with your Adderall dose. And maybe something else wrong too, but whatever, get to the psychiatrist and stop wasting time here.

have you been diagnosed with something otherthan adhd? have you been on other antipsychotics or do you take other medications? i ask because latuda is an antipsychoticand not one to "try out" unless your symptoms have been identified as stemming from one of a few things that, really, if you're having symptoms of, in lieu of looking for a medicatino to suggest, i would encourage you to have a very honest conversation with your psychiatrist about your experiences.

i gather from your thread start that you don't see an issue with the adderall, but, frankly, if this is a redent development...people do get stimulant psychosis and need to switch medications...and, really, ther are other explanations that are less ideal.
