REXULTI: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Schizophrenia “Rexulti seems too be a good medicine so far. After one week my paranoia is almost gone. I do notice a speedy effect which has caused me too be more active. This is actually good because rexulti is helping me too get out of the house and avoid some social phobia issues. I would definitely recommend this med if you have any kind of paranoia associated with bipolar depression. Tommorow the 7th day I will increase too one mg. Lets hope this med continues too work .Thanks and good luck. Ps I have been on many meds and hated most all atypical antipsychotics.”

For Depression “I have dealt with MDD,GAD and PTSD meds for over 30 years and have had periods of relief with different cocktails some lasting 5-6 years but as many of you know I built a tolerance to them all. A year and half ago my anxiety started waking me up and quickly became complete insomnia and we tried many combinations for now 4 disorders and was able to sleep but woke feeling depressed. I take nefazadone, amitripyline and clonodine and my psychiatrist gave me a Rexulti sample pack but from the first .5 tablet I had a hard time falling asleep and staying asleep until I have none. I rated Resulti a 6 because in my experience with this product adjunct to the tricyclics my depression disappeared completely by the 2nd but for me I choose sleep but am very envious of those people who have no bad side effects and good insurance because the cost of this on Medicare will put you in the donut hole”

For Depression “I was on Abilify for almost ten years, but, as well as it worked, I could not stop gaining weight because I was always starving. My psychiatrist suggested Rexulti, and my weight gain has stopped without a change in diet or exercise. I take Rexulti for psychotic depression, and it keeps me stable and fully functional. I take 2mg a day at night, because it is sedating. Highly recommended for anyone who wants an alternative to Abilify.”

For Major Depressive Disorder “This medication has helped with depression but ever since I started taking it my OCD and intrusive thoughts have been out of control. Also I gained about 40 lbs in 8 months which is a HUGE downside as I have major body image issues.”

For Depression “I’ve had good experience with Rexulti. I am struggling with depression at the moment (although diagnosed as Bipolar). At first it gave me headaches and upset stomach. That lasted for a few days. After that, I started feeling so much better. The depression has lifted in about a week and a half to two weeks. No anxiety from this drug. No awful side effects. So far haven’t gained any weight on it (fingers crossed).”

For Major Depressive Disorder “I began rexulti about 7 weeks ago (also on lamictol, cymbalta and different benzos) increasing slowly every 2-3 weeks by the time I hit 3 mg everything swung out of control with my anxiety, OCD, compulsive thoughts and sleep – I was all out of wack. My initial experience was pleasant – my mood stabilized quickly and had more energy. Sleep was better yet some pretty vivid dreams which initially I could manage. By the time I hit 3 mg (after initially blaming some life stressors in increased anxiety) I realized it was when I bumped to 2 mg that my anxiety, OCD, sleep problems were amplified even further. So I am going off the med now. Side effects were too severe…”
