Fanapt (iloperidone) for Psychosis: “I’ve been on this medicine since March 28, 2014 and it’s currently 3/28/2017. Very effective medicine with no weight gain, but it takes away my ability to ejaculate which I sometimes miss. I’ve really been waiting on the injection version to be available as this is the best medicine we’ve found for me for depression and psychosis and I’d like to try the shot. Our insurance Aetna & medicaid covers the co-pay entirely. This medicine is great for anyone suffering from schizophrenia, depression, autism, or bi-polar. I’ve been diagnosed with all four. Other medicines I’ve tried are Latuda which gave me the need to constantly move akathesia, I’ve been on nearly every medicine and I’d recommend this one the highest , I also take clonidine to sleep”

Fanapt (iloperidone) for Schizophrenia: “I’ve taken Fanapt for about a month and it feels as though I’m taking nothing for my mental illness. Plus I’m achy all over, have heart palpitations and feel agitated all the time. I’m going back to zyprexa”

Fanapt (iloperidone) for Schizophrenia: “Fanapt is the first medicine we’ve tried where I can function because of the medicine. I can hold a job now, the paranoia is wayyy down, and I only get a few hallucinations throughout the day. My mind isn’t quite as sharp, and the dry throat gets pretty bad, but other than that, this drug has saved my life. I’ve been on it for 8 months now.”

For Bipolar Disorder: “Fanapt is my fourth medication since September when I was finally diagnosed with Bipolar 2. Abilify, Latuda, and geodon made me feel like I wanted to come out of my skin. I was misdiagnosed for years. But this medication, in addition to my treatment plan, has completely changed my life. It did make me quite edgy at first and I still felt “unstable”, so my doctor added Lithium last week to my Paxil,Lamictal,and Fanapt. I am feeling better than I have ever felt. I feel truly alive for the first time in my life. I go to counseling every week and I haven’t missed one appointment since I started in September. So I’m doing my part as well. Thank God for therapy and medication!”

Fanapt (iloperidone) for Psychosis: “So far nothing but the worst dry mouth I ever experienced. It hasn’t even been a week and I am not sure if I can do this. HORRIBLE THIRST! I even wake up in my sleep to drink water and it doesn’t help. I have temporal lobe epilepsy and my seizure activity causes schizophrenia like complications. I REALLY WANT THIS TO WORK! I’m worried about diabetes. I wonder if I am having a reaction with my other medications. So far no seizures though.”
