Default Vraylar

I just came back from the psychiatrist with a prescription for 1.5 mg of Vraylar taking at night this is in addition to Haldol 6 mg per day, anyone have any experience with this medication? If so how well does it work and what are its side effects?

Very activating for me, too. And really expensive, even with decent insurance. I ended up switching to something else.

brexpiprazole and cariprazine are relatively new medications so you may not find too many people on it yet
You may include here your experience about this to help others

I am also on haldol and have been for about five years and it works great anyway that’s besides the point, I started Vraylar on Friday and as I write this it’s Wednesday night I am on 1.5 mg I am going to go the full 30days before I judge so far the only side effect I am getting is insomnia. As this could be just the fact that I need to get used to the medication I going to give it time unless it gets severe, other then that no problems I can feel it starting to kick in but no thataputic effects yet
