On vraylar/realiga for 3 weeks. No improvement yet

But plenty of side effects (spasms, dizziness, sleepiness, etc.). Am I being too impatient?

Vraylar has a super long half life so it takes a long time for it to become steady in your system. I started at 1.5mg, didn’t feel real relief from positive symptoms till I was up to 3mg and then 4.5mg. So it took me several months to get to the dosage that really helped.

Try to be patient, it will get better…

I guess I was hoping it’d prove more helpful on the negative symptoms front. I’m currently at 3 mg, but I admit I’m losing heart; negatives are hard to crack.

It helped my negative symptoms for the first month, then kind of fizzled.

That’s what I feared. Still, I’ll give it a chance.
