Hi! I was recently diagnosed schizoaffective with bipolar features. I've been in the hospital several times in a relatively short period of time. I've been on a number of meds, and I always have the most trouble with the anti-psychotics. Yesterday, I started Vraylar. It kind of seems to be making me worse. My doc says to wait 2 weeks.... Has anyone else tried this? Thanks.

Hi! Welcome to the forum. I have not been on Vraylar, so I cannot comment on that. But I noticed that no one has answered yet, and didn't want you to think no one cares. I hope your reaction to the med. will turn around and start helping. If it keeps getting worse, you might want to let your doc know. God bless!

Hiya and welcome. I haven't heard of this med before. Does it have another name? I agree with HHRT1 that if it makes you worse, go back and make a nuisance of yourself asking for something else. But I also know that meds take a while to work so maybe try it for a few weeks first.
