Speech in general has always been a little bit of an issue for me. I did see a speech pathologist in the past but I was about 12 and didn't care much to benefit from it then. Just for the record, I have always noticed that my speech is much sharper when I'm not taking antipsychotic medications. Strangely enough, I seem to speak the most clearly right before I have a relapse and I am becoming manic. Almost every antipsychotic I have taken has had a negative reaction on my speech but never as much as the most recent, Fanapt. I was recently switched from Latuda 20mg to Fanapt 6mg (once daily) to
My doctor and I have been trying out Fanapt and have finally gotten up to the max therapeutic dose of 24mg and I'm curious to hear about other people's experiences with this med.

Hi All, I am on my 5th med try since July as the side effects have been horrific or the drugs didn't work. I have tried Invega, Geodon, Abilify, Latuda...and now Fanapt. I had posted on here regarding Latuda and got great feedback so I thought I'd ask about Fanapt. If you've taken it, what has your experience been with: a. weight b. energy levels c. overheating from exercise d. overall mood(any flat affect, etc) Thanks so much! P.S. This trial and error bs is EXHAUSTING. I'm damn near fed up.
