    Initially the medication seemed to work really well but now after about a month it has become less/ineffective. I have also experienced unusual weight gain which is not a positive. This medication is no longer a good option for me.

    After two weeks of taking this medication, I ended up in hospital with pneumonia. I also developed paranoia which has never been an issue for me.

    Taking it was the difference between night & day for me. Initially, it was a transition, but after a while, I noticed my relating to people was 100% better, and I was sleeping soundly through the night, whereas before I was waking up at 2 AM and no matter what I did I couldn't get back to sleep. Best drug that ever happened to me.

    I had almost immediate heightened energy and high level of mood (mania at times) that has now lasted a month. Do not have even one drink with this medication. After almost 24hours I am feeling better but had a horrible side effect.

    I have been on saphris for about 2 months now, and it has done wonders for me. I can finally control my moods and I seem to get along with people better. However, I also take Geodon, which my doctor says the two medicines together is what is working wonders. Geodon alone was not helping me. With the addition of saphris, I can finally live a normal life.
