be very, very careful when taking this drug! During routine bloodwork my liver enzymes were three times the normal level while on Saphris. The taste is awful and I lost all taste sensation while on this drug. Do not take this unless it is a last resort!!!

I have been on this for about 3 weeks now and feel better than I have in 8 months. It took me a little while to get used to taste and the numbness it left in my mouth but after that it is not so bad. With the goodness I get from it dealing with the bad taste is a small thing to deal with.
