Hi!

I was wondering if anyone has been put on Vraylar to help dealing with psychosis from OCD? I have been prescribed with it but am hesitant to start it as it is recommended that I not exercise or go outside. I feel like if I do not do these things, my mental health will get even worse. If anyone could share their experience, that would be great!

Hello, I don't understand why you would not be able to exercise or go out, did you ask why? Did they say you might feel tired initially or that you might catch the sun more than usual? My medication means i burn a bit faster but i wear suncream and a hat.

I think it’s because it reduces my body’s ability to regulate heat. I decided to start it and everything has been okay. I’ve been laying by my pool and just hop in it I start feeling woozy. The worst symptom I’m experiencing is insomnia at night and hypersomnia during the day...
