I’m on 3 mg of Vraylar, but I honestly forget why I was originally put on this med. I’ve been on it awhile, lol. But it does work for me – and works great in conjunction with Latuda 120 mg. I still have a lot of anxiety, but I think that’s just from the illness. Paranoia and delusions are pretty mild. Negative symptoms are mild, too. No side effects that I know of
I’m on 9 mg of Vraylar. I tried 12 mg once or twice by accident and it didn’t work. 6mg is the max FDA recommended dose. I smoke and drink a lot and am over weight so I figure 9 mg acts like 4.5 mg or even 6 mg for most folks.
It keeps me home and away from doctors and hospitals. It’s good enough for me. It’s not perfect. I tried Caplyta, but it didn’t work out. I would love to do both: Caplyta and Vraylar but haven’t found a doctor willing to do it yet. Maybe some day. It’s not that hard. It’s an insurance issue.
