Borderline personality disorder, I have psychotic suicidal episodes brought on by stress. I was first prescribed 5mg in the morning and 5mg at night. I noticed immediate change. But the side effects for me are constant boredom. So I only take my night tablet regular and my morning tablet I take, as required, any time of day. I can be in a full blown episode and within 30mins I'm calm and logical and can work through my thoughts. I sleep at night and I'm non drowsy during the day. If you've had bad experiences try "as required" and night only. Talk to your doctor. It has literally saved my life more times than I can count

My psychiatrist placed me on this medication because I was having so many difficulties with taking Seroquel. Seroquel caused me weight gain, diabetes, and fast heart beat but it also helped me to sleep. Since, I was having so many issues with Seroquel my doctor placed me on Saphris which helped with my mania and sleep issues. However, i have to take the medicine really early or take one pill inside of two if I expect to function normally the next day.

I started taking this drug to treat severe mixed manic symptoms. It made me fall asleep almost immediately but I was awake within an hour to two hours and could not fall back asleep. I ended up taking Vistaril , And Clonopin for sleep without any effect. The medication made my heart pound when I went to sleep which was very uncomfortable and made me very confused and it was very difficult to get up and find my way to the bathroom at night. I never noticed any improvement in my bipolar symptoms whatsoever. I think this drug is completely useless in my case though it seems to have helped other people. I guess it would depend on the person’s brain chemistry as to whether or not this medication will work for you. It did not work for me at all.

I have Hypomania, rarely depressive episodes if ever but wicked mania. In a serious episode my doc recommended a change to try Saphris. I slept the night I first took it which was great. I’ve been on it a year, I sleep a solid, sound, uninterrupted 5 hours a night or more, which is a huge improvement. I have no side effects and I feel great in the morning. Anyone with mania dominant mood disorder, I would recommend it to. Lifesaver.

Saphris was given to me via sample packets for my panic attacks ( I would literally go into seizure like convulsions ), and insomnia .I have a borderline personality disorder not bipolar. These tablets taste awful. It would instantly rid me of my severe panic attacks. The medication would either knock me out in 20 mins and keep me in a deep sleep for 12+ hours or I'd wake up with restless legs through out the night. There was no way to know if I'd sleep or experience a rollercoaster. Either way, I'd become completely delusional and what seemed to be "high" shortly after taking the medication. It was near impossible to use basic motor skills. A non alcoholic hangover occurs if you can't sleep in the night after consuming the tablet. Saphris is great for extreme cases of panic, but I wouldn't suggest this medication for those w/ BPD. I also wouldn't suggest it for people who have to be up early for work or class.

It helped me sleep alright... for 3 DAYS. And when I woke up I had no idea I'd been asleep that long until my mom let me know. She said I woke up a handful of times to use the bathroom but I had no recollection of that. My parents were terrified throughout the entire 3 days but my psychiatrist reassured them that it was a side effect that would pass.

My daughter was on Saphris for two days and went cross eyed. Unable to uncross them. Took her to the E.R. and while checking her in she passed out cold on the floor and hit her head. She was catatonic for hours and unable to move or speak. The entire two days she was taking these meds she felt lightheaded and very uncomfortable.

I was prescribed this medication to help me to get In to deep sleep due to Bipolar 2. The first night I took 5 mg and it worked, I did not dream! BUT I literally could not wake up. I slept for 14 hours. The next day I took 2.5 mg and struggled to wake up, but not as bad (and the medication still worked!). The next day I took 1/4 of a 5mg tablet and it worked perfect. So why did I rate it so low? Yesterday I realized I had a UTI... my first one in over 10 years. I tried to figure out what changed in my life reacently... and this medication was the only thing. I googled Saphris and UTI. A bunch popped up in the search about woman and men getting rapid onset UTI’s in the first month of taking it. I’m miserable right now and so upset this caused it. I may take Saphris again one day, but not now! This UTI is terrible. The taste is terrible!!! But besides the UTI, the medication worked (for the 3 days I took it).

I was started on Saphris last year after several failed trials of medications for sleep. I had maxed out on the typical (atypical) antipsychotics. I was essentially told to practice better "sleep hygiene" and was dismissed. Thankfully I wasn't completely written off. I have Bipolar Disorder but have been symptom free (of mania) for years. I do have racing thoughts at night, though, and Saphris does wonders to get me to sleep. I have not experienced any side effects, but my dose is quite low (2.5). The taste doesn't bother me.

I have been on Saphris for a year and a half. It has really helped with my mixed episodes and stopped the rapid cycling. It has been a godsend. The taste is bad, but the symptoms of bipolar and much worse.

OMG let me just say that I have been on literally almost all the antidepressants & many of the antipsychotics that are on the market. HANDS DOWN Saphris is by far the worst drug I have ever taken. To anyone who is contemplating taking this drug, I caution you to think very very very very hard before moving ahead with it. Educate yourself. Scower the net, see for yourself all the horror stories. They are true!! I was put on this drug because I was having trouble getting to sleep. I had been on Gabapentin but my increased tolerance for it kept causing my Dr to increase the dosage. Until it was not healthy. So I went for my monthly appointment, it will be 3 years in September and he said he had samples of a new drug he wanted me to take instead of Gabapentin. At the time I was working a lot. I trusted my doctor. He knows my history. I was bulimic from 17-35. At that time I had surgery to tighten my sphincter muscle because my heartburn was terrible. After my surgery I couldn't vomit any longer. I'm sharing this because for me, the #1 side effect of taking Saphris was significant weight gain. Putting a patient with a history of an eating disorder on a drug that causes significant weig

I was not sleeping at night and spent most of my days in bed. I was unable to participate in life activities. With saphris I sleep at night and wake up, shower and am ready for my day.

I love this medication. I don't think it taste bad at all. This is the first time in over a year that I am able to go out of my house. I am smiling again. I just cant say enough! My doctor is in the process of switching me from several weight gaining meds to with neutral meds. So far I think it may have helped me lose a few pounds and I have only reduced my serequil dose a little bit. I sleep better than ever and I can concentrate on things. I am accomplishing things instead of going in circles causing chaos in my house. Doc has also put me on lamotrigine. I like it too.

Took drug for schizoaffective, tried other anti psychotics in the past that simply didn't work, first drug to make a real positive improvement. Helped my cognitive disfunction and unstable mood a ton. My only complaint is that it tastes so foul I have to mentally prepare myself to take it, and if I Go off of it I become completely Insomnic. Overall a good drug to try for affective/psychotic symptom management.

I was given this medication for sleep. I told my doctor I had a genetic problem with metabolizing serotonin and other neurochemicals, but he didn't seem to think it mattered. He also didn't check for drug interactions with my current medications. All I knows is that 5 days into my starter pack I got so sick I couldn't get out of bed. My taste was distorted and I felt completely poisoned. I kept tasting the horrible chemical taste of it in my mouth. I finally stopped taking it, and took activated charcoal to get it out of my system! It gave me a fever, and made me unable to stand the taste of any food. Do not take this horrible medication!!!

I'm not taking it for schizophrenia but for bipolar 1 with mixed episodes. I had been on Risperdal for over 10 years but started gaining weight and lactating...yes lactating. I haven't breast fed in 20 years!!! Very odd!!! My pdoc switched me to Saphris, and it's been the best thing ever. I feel so good. I actually feel like going and doing things. Being out in public doesn't bother me like it did. I think I feel happy but I've not felt that way in so long I can't tell if it's happiness or mania!!! Great drug so far!!!

I have epilepsy and just started taking Saphris two weeks ago. I am seizure free but am on three primary medicines. I currently take 800 mg of Lamitcal, 400 AM and 400 PM. I take 500 mg Aptiom PM. For sleep I take 2 mg Clonzaepam before bed. I am starting Saphris at 5 mg at bed time but am experincing bad insomnia that has been getting worse. I plan to start taking the 5 mg of Saphris in the morning and ramp up to 10 mg AM daily. So far I feel great on the medication but am not getting any sleep. Has anyone else experenced something like this as well?
