This drug has given me some bad side effects, I'm gassy, bloated and I have Type 1 Diabetes and Saphris seems to be raising my blood sugars, I've been on in for almost a month and my blood sugars can't get below 300, and I have to take very large doses of insulin as well, not to mention it's making me eat and eat.

EXTREMELY bad side effect of not being able to sleep for almost a month after I stopped taking! At most I got one hours sleep a night and not even ambien could get me to sleep longer for more than 3 weeks after i stopped it. i'll stick with my bi polar, these meds have worse side effects (for me) than the disease they are supposed to treat!.
