    Second update - Rexulti was initially great for me at .5mgs, but slowly inching up to 3mgs, the drug made me incredibly restless and anxious. I didn’t take it at all today and I feel better. Sigh, back to the drawing board.

    Having been on many MDD meds over the years, none of which worked very well, I have to say this one is working. Almost immediately I began to feel human again and not like a slug. I have motivation again! I still have suicidal thoughts but nothing like before. Now I am back to doing things I enjoy. Before I didn't want to do anything.

The one effect that has amazed me the most was pain ... Show Full Comment

    Update: I had initially said in a prior review that just one .5mg dose made me feel less depressed and it's still doing wonders for me. Here's the biggest news of all: NO MORE RESTLESS LEGS!!!!! OMG, I have suffered from RLS since I was 10 years old (we're talking 1973) and this stuff just made it disappear! I am so so grateful. Nothing, but nothing else ever worked for my RLS - su ...

    I just took my first 0.5mg dose and already feel so much less depressed and more hopeful. This was prescribed as an adjunct to Effexor XR (already on a very high dose of that). Fingers crossed that the good effect continues.
