Are you thinking polypharmacy or switching when it comes out?

It got approved in the UK some months ago, but I can’t get it in my region

I would suspect like most things it will switch off a light and one you wouldn’t have expected will come on again

Be careful @Aziz

Are you still off your meds?

I went back on them yesterday. I want to completely switch to Vraylar.

For crying out loud.
How long have you been off the meds?

I tapered off meds in 3 days, then one day off meds, next day I took meds again. So one day without any meds.

You know what I think about it already.
