Anyone on Vraylar?

My psychiatrist wants to combine Vraylar with my Clozaril
Especially cause of Clozaril side effects and my negative symptoms. Eventually, hopefully, I can get off clozapine

He said it’s very new here in Canada and has had good reviews
Anyone on this medication? How’s it working for you?

Thanks :+1::blush:

Vraylar is now available in Canada?

I’ve been on 6 mg of Vraylar for awhile now. I take it in conjunction with Latuda as my AP.

Vraylar gives me some energy, but doesn’t 100% knock out the negatives. Good med though, I like it

Yes, very recently he said…

Yes he said helps mood , energy
Less weight gain chances etc

He did also say it’s been good for negatives too, but everyone is different

In the context of timeline that phase I, II, III trials and psychiatry moves at it is recent but yeah the medication has actually been around a while. It depends on your perception of time I guess :person_shrugging:

Im on 10 mg olanzapine and 1.5 mg Vraylar, maybe it’s helping a bit with energy and mood, but not sure. I will test it soon, and try to stop and see what happens.

I am on 300 mg clozapine and 3 mg Vraylar. The Vraylar helps reduce the need to sleep so much but other than that I can’t tell a difference.

Mood? Weight gain?
Not great on negative symptoms?

I got akathisia on lowest dose of Vraylar.

I had akathisia with Abilify
I hope not the case with this one. Apparently it is slightly similar to Abilify
