  1. For those taking Rexulti, I'm curious: Do you take your dose in the morning or at night?
  2. Hi folks, "merry holidays" (lol). So here's my current state of play. There are a lot of variables in play which is something I strive to avoid but then life (and things like not getting divorced or fired) get in the way: I'm tapering off of Wellbutrin XL. It's 6 days since my last 75mg XL dose (before you cry "it doesn't come in 75mg doses!" I was taking 300mg WB XL / 4. Not ideal, but such is life). I'm tapering off of Mirapex. I've been on 0.125mg since the 14th (10 days). I started L-Methylfolate at 10mg (perhaps foolishly - that's a high dose) on the 16th (8 days ag
  3. Hello everyone, I hope everyone's December has been off to a good start. I am back, on the med merry-go-round and also sober from opiates.... Again (16 days as of now). So I was taking wellbutrin as an add on to my Prozac, and it really didn't help and might have made me worse, losing dramatic amounts of weight, a lot of intrusive thoughts, very depressed (though that's probably just it not doing much for it. And getting off drugs.) so I'm now on the Rexulti starter pack. I'm here seeking others experiences with abilify and rexulti, since they are both dopamine partial agonists and 5
  4. I will try to keep this brief. I was always depressed and my senior year of college (a year ago) I had a major psychotic break where I literally thought I was flying through the universe. I was hospitalized in for two weeks, and I have been trying to fine tune my meds. I am working closely with my Pdoc, but am getting very discouraged. Any input would be appreciated. Lithium is what brought be out of my mania, and I have been on 900mg er every since. I have gone thru Latuda. Could only get to 60 mg. I took with food, but still felt ill most of the time. Cannot take Lamictal
  5. Hi there, I was just wondering if anyone here has tried Rexulti as an AD adjunct for depression. Please tell me what you thought of it, I know it's very similar to Abilify, but surprisingly Rexulti under my insurance + the manufacturer discount card is cheaper than generic Abilify, so I want to get familiar with it. I have only had one true experience with an AAP, Seroquel, and it was actually really nice but it made me sleep like a rock, so I got off it years ago. I'm not switching to Rexulti at the moment, but my psych let me know it's the next option if Wellbutrin doesn't work out.
  6. Just wondering if anyone out there has had any experiences with the medication Rexulti (brexpiprazole)? My psychiatrist chose to give this a try (2mg) after evaluating and attempting to treat my persistent manic symptoms -- I would go days without sleeping and not feel tired, racing ideas and thoughts, increased in "goal-directed" activity like cleaning the kitchen for hours and sexual promiscuity, inflated self-esteem, inattention or inability to focus, pressured speech, rapid talking, and hyperactivity. Seroquel is super effective for stopping my mania but the negative cognitive effect and z
  7. Mods, please feel free to move this if it's not the right place or if another place would give it better visibility. Hello! I've been away for quite some time, but here's a quick summary of my crazy: I have major depressive disorder, dysthymia, and generalized anxiety disorder. I've been in remission for about 10 years but had a relapse recently after two very sad overseas funerals, a visit to my parents (Dad has Alzheimer's, parents underwater on their mortgage, Mom probably has some undiagnosed mental health issue but refuses to seek treatment), and yet another close friend h
  8. Does anyone else have experience with Rexulti completely destroying their depression? For me, Rexulti almost had a same day anti-depressant effect and controls depressive episodes acutely and astoundingly fast. I literally feel anti-depressant effects in as little as 3 hours after I take it. When I look back to when I was on it, I now realize that I didn't have a single bout of depression during that time, it just was not super effective in controlling mania. I think Rexulti is a hell of an anti-depressant, a way improved drug than abilify with less than half the side effects, no lethargy or c
  9. Hello everyone. Did a search on the forums and found that there weren't any recent threads compiling everyone's experiences of Rexulti. I've recently started taking Depakote. I hit a mixed state and we went up to 25mg on loxapine to compensate but it caused too much akathisia and we needed something to stabilize me quickly without using the higher dose of loxapine. Depakote did a better job of that than the oxcarbazepine that I was taking originally. Now that I've titrated up to 1000mg, I feel like it does a mostly good job at getting me to a better baseline. Just went to 1500mg for
  10. Hey guys, long time lurker here, and I'd really like your input on something. I'm a bit stuck when it comes to treatment, and I'd like to hear some peoples' opinions, as I wont be able to see my doctor to talk about it for a little while. I’m currently diagnosed as having GAD and MDD, but I’m starting to think I have a bipolar spectrum disorder. Here are some points: Failed multiple antidepressants (Zoloft, Lexapro, Prozac, Viibryd, Pristiq). Failed and/or had too many side effects Had side effects on every serotogenic antidepressant, even while augmenting (Wellbutrin, Bus
  11. How can those of you who have been on Rexulti or Abilify the experience of akathisia? I think I am experiencing it as I cannot sit down not even for a minute without getting up and going to the other side of the room to get a cup and then walk around my house, as it almost feels uncomfortable to sit still unless I take my as prescribed xanax dose and valium together. Ambien helps with the restlessness at night obviously because it works well for my insomnia. If you've been on other atypical anti-psychotics I would love to hear about if you have experienced or are having akathisia and please
  12. I have never participated in a blog before, but found this when I Googled symptoms of Rexulti. The answers were intriguing and the people seemed real, so I decided to try. I'm interested in hearing about what other people are experiencing. I've been taking it for about 10 days and it is definitely working. Changing the time of day when I took it helps with the insomnia. Adding Vyvanse helps with the urge to eat everything in my house. Xanax helps the anxiety. I still get a little dizziness/lack of coordination (bumping into corners/dropping my coffee). I would really love to hear how othe
  13. I just started Rexulti today, I was wondering if anyone has had weight gain with this?
  14. I've been on 2 mg of Rex for 2 1/2 weeks now. It's been amazing. About 3 days ago I noticed a rash on my left shoulder. It is really tiny bumps with white heads on them like tiny pimples. They have a slight itch as well. I thought nothing of it until applied some hydrocortisone to the affected area a couple of times a day for 2 days. Needless to say the rash is still there and has spread to my other shoulder. Could this be caused by the rexulti? I read that one of the side effects is a rash. Has anyone experienced this? Tonight I took a benedryl.
  15. Well, I started my first dose of Rexulti tonight. 0.5 mg. I'm adding it on for depression, which is proving to be rather medication resistant, and I'm a previous Abilify user. I took 2mg Abilify from about October 2015 to May 2016. Stopped it because of severe restlessness and an overall feeling of "not myself", which laughably enough I still feel. I also was emotionally deadened, which I thought was a negative until I've been off it and sobbing all day, begging the sky to die, having mood swings, anger outbursts, you know. I've decided to give antipsychotics another go because maybe emotional
  16. Please no judging... So for two years I have had extreme anxiety and depression. To the point where I couldn't leave my room much of the time. My boyfriend was extremely helpful, he is amazing and wonderful, to the point where he doesn't deserve someone like me. This past year I have been trying so hard to love him, I do love him but I'm not really in love with him. I want to be with him so this feeling would get my anxiety and obsessive thoughts going non stop. We just don't have that connection I feel a couple should have. He is very stimulating when it comes to anxiety and it had pushed me
  17. I went inpatient back in June and the doctor there added depakote er 1000mg to my regimen along with rexulti 2mg to go with the zoloft 100mg, and topamax 100mg twice a day that I was taking. It was working wonders. I was finally stable. I was also very sleepy. My original pdoc said if depakote er at 1000mg made me too sleepy then to try it at 500mg or one tablet at bedtime. I have been scared to do that because it was working so well! But, I was sleeping all day and all night also. This week, i decided to take my pdoc suggestion and try it at 500mg at bedtime. I am a little more awake bu
  18. I haven't seen any recent posts on this drug so here goes. Because I'm sick of the weight gain, I'm in The process of switching from Lexapro + abilify to Lexapro + Latuda. My diagnosis is MDD, GAD and panic disorder. I loved Abilify, it was my miracle drug that made me a new person but with only one side effect, constant weight gain. Latuda hasn't been as effective so far but I'm going to try to go up on my dose. i saw my pdoc today and she suggested that I do some research and see what I think about Rexulti (I actually really appreciate that she encourages me to do my own research)
