Am I the only one on Saphris?

This has been my mood stabilizer for a couple of months. I might need to increase the dose at this point. Does anyone else take it?

I don't take it and have never. I take risperdal as a mood stabilizer. Saphris is one of the newer drugs and I don't know much about it.

Never heard of it. Here's a bump.

My sister in law has been on it for several months. Apparently it has many purposes. My sister in law had been hearing voices for years. Now she said they are very faint. I guess it helps to stabilize moods, also?

It's an antipsychotic which is sometimes used to stabilize moods. Right now my meds aren't doing their job though as I just started an antidepressant yesterday and it will take some time to work, so we'll see how this combo goes after a while.

Quoting Memere60:
