Has anyone tried Vraylar? It's the last in a long line of anti-psychotics that I'm trying. I started yesterday, and so far, I feel worse, probably. Thoughts? Suggestions? I tried Clozapine, and I had struggles while on it, too.

no but I had a lot of trouble getting the right anti psychotic
two trips to hospital , this was about five years ago
I got myself an advocate because I felt I was not being listened to
when I complained about the effects of the drug and the side effects
she seemed to be able to explain my feelings when I was not able to do that

Thank you! Where do you live? I don’t know if an advocate is available to me here. My therapist, maybe?

Haven't tried vraylar, but I did see it takes 2-3months to have full effect. I'm like you been on a lot of different anti phycotics and it is frustrating finding the right one. I'm on rexulti and invega at the moment and really can't complain. One day ins probably to early to make a judgement on a medication. Good luck with it
