My experience on Rexulti so far

I’ve been on Rexulti for about 16 days, I started at 1mg for a week, then 2mg for a week, and now im two days into 3mgs. I feel great honestly. I havent felt this human in a long time. My paranoia is completely gone, my hallucinations are a lot less bothersome (although still there), and no thoughts about harming myself anymore. I think the most noticeable change has been that i dont sleep all day anymore. Before starting rexulti, i was sleeping 16 hours at a time every day.

the only side effects ive experienced so far is interrupted sleep at night and some impulsive thoughts about doing reckless things… especially when im driving. i think im going to ask my psych if i can stay at 3mg becuase it seems to be working rather well for me so far.

also, no weight gain so far!


I might try it. I haven’t had a med change in years.

Yay! that’s great to hear that you are doing well, for the most part, on the rexulti. Sounds like a good med. I’d try it, but I am pretty stable on vraylar. The two meds work similarly.

is what you’re taking now not working?

My meds aren’t working as good as they used to and my nurse practitioner wants to change my med.

do you have any TD (Tardive dyskinesia) experience ? I hope not but if yes how do you manage it? please share.

I’m sorry, I don’t have any experience with that. TD seems like a very rough thing to go through, I hope i never experience it.

Thank you for your reply. I hope you never get TD and get better soon.
