My husband is taking this for Paranoid Dementia and Alzheimer's disease. He is still aggressive and paranoid, but is calmer. It has been a little over two weeks since he went on the drug. Long term, we will have to see.

I'm on 40mg in a.m. and 80mg in p.m. I'm taking so much because I had to take a huge amount of either geodon or seroquel for effectiveness. I tried the full 120mg at night once, left me with severe vertigo the next day. It seems to be working but have had some breakthrough cycles. I rapid cycle. I'll keep trying it. Not near as foggy as when on seroquel. Still have bad insomnia.

I hate that I have to eat 350 calories with it. What's the point of having a med that's weight neutral if it forces you to eat an extra meal's worth with it? It gives me slight, not bad but slight, akathisia and drowsiness, so I can't take it at dinner, so it forces me to take it with more food before bed. However, I love that it has only made me a little flat, not extra hungry, an ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking this med for about a month. I have more energy and I can think more clearly! The only problem I have with it is eating before taking the med. YOU HAVE TO EAT AT LEAST 350 CALORIES BEFORE TAKING THE MED!!! If you don't you get sick!! I have to take it before I sleep and I really do not want to eat before I sleep, but that is the only problem I have with it. I take it for bi-p ... Show Full Comment
