    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!.

    I did really well on Saphris. I felt good. I was sleeping and had a lot of energy that wasn't mania. I took it in the morning because I couldn't sleep after taking it; it made me feel nervous at first. My symptoms gradually got worse until about 3 weeks after beginning Saphris I noticed that I would get restless and have trouble sitting still about 2 hours after taking the drug. Then afte ...

    I have felt good from the beginning. People complain that the bad taste Is a real drawback but I don't see why that should really matter, I don't mind the taste, I find the meds work which is what people should be talking about.
