Does Vraylar work for positive symptoms?

My pdoc said vraylar was more oriented as a mood stabilizer. Does it also work for voices? I’m considering my options.

It has taken away all my delusional thinking as well as blocks 99% of visual hallucinations, which is what I get mostly. I really recommend it. It keeps you calm emotionally as well. It’s the best antipsych I’ve tried yet.

I’m still having occasional tremors on my left leg a year after quitting vraylar. If it gets worse I’ll sue them for damages.

I’m pretty sure that Vraylar made me manic but I could be wrong.

Hi Longamor i feel the same its been 7 days now since i start taking Vraylar 1,5 is this enough i feel stable

but i take 5 mg abilify for 4 days now that i am withdrawing to 0 now, what is your experience and in how many day did it start to work for you? I agree it’s a good med the best I’ve taken so far I hope

It took a couple weeks to kick in fully if I remember correctly. I do remember feeling a change in mood from the first pill. I also started on 1.5 and worked my way to 3 mg.

I don’t think so but I will ask my psychiatrist 3 December. Pretty sure its not covered by insurance though and it costs 1300$US/month which is 1700$CA. I can’t afford that.
