Hello all...new to posting here...

So my pdoc prescribed Saphris for delusions and paranoia. We started at 5mg, then 10mg, now she wanted to up to 20mg but I got too groggy in the morning for work so we're trying 15mg for now. Anyone have experience with how long it takes for the paranoia and delusions to fade? Right now I'm really struggling because I'm afraid my therapist works for The Shadow People and is setting me up to get captured or killed...I'm afraid to go see her because I can't get it out of my mind that she's a danger, and she used to be such a comfort but something just switched over to paranoia about her being connected to the Shadows and a past abusive person that threatened to kill me. I NEED THESE THOUGHTS TO END - IT'S SO MENTALLY PAINFUL TO HAVE NO SAFE PLACE ANYMORE!!! I feel in danger all the time and it's exhausting.

Should I just go straight to the 20mg and just deal with the grogginess so that the meds can get rid of these painful thoughts? Or does anyone have experience with lower doses working out for this? Help!

Hi soul artist. I'm about to start Saphris myself tonight. I'm bipolar 1, ocd, and anxiety. Me personally,  I'd rather be groggy and take naps than have the current mania and aniexty I have. If the Saphris doesn't help tonight I may go to a crisis center. I said a prayer for you, hope you don't mind. God bless you soul.
