Guest TheMusician777 Posted December 15, 2010 Share Posted December 15, 2010 Hey all, I have a psychosis(Bipolar Mania w/ psychotic features) and currently I am taking Saphris. I have been taking 5mgx2 at bed time for the past two months and things are going OK. However, I will be starting work soon and I told my doctor that I'm concerned about major drowsiness in the morning. He suggested that I go down to 5mgx1 at bedtime. I'm kind of concerned because the FDA approved amount for Bipolar mania is at least 10mg a day. My question/concern is will 5mgx1 at bed time be enough for me? I have been on all kinds of meds(Seroquel, Geodon, Zyprexa, Depakote, etc). Saphris is the first med I've been on that makes me feel really good w/o all the crap side effects. Keeping my fingers crossed, Nathan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
