Brief Answer:
Yes it can be taken

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX,

Thanks for follow up direct question and writing to us.

Yes lithium can be taken with lurasidone.

There is no significant interaction between latuda and lithium.

Confirm evidence from one comprehensive study indexed in PUbmed which is quite authentic as per our medical community.
