My son took Saphris in conjunction with Latuda. It helped a lot but because it makes a person sleepy it helps to regulate their sleep if taken at bedtime. However, if your child is like my son and did not adhere to a regular sleep routine he was hit or miss on his meds. So they didn’t always work well because he didn’t take them regularly. We switched him to Abilify which has an injectable which is awesome! The best thing for schizophrenics ever. They’re usually monthly, but I’ve heard thete’s a new one out that lasts for three months. I would do anything to get my son on that. Unfortunately, he’s decided he doesn’t need any meds right now because he moved to a new town and was off his meds too long, so now he thinks he doesn’t need them. Good luck! The Saphris should help if he’s reliable to take it, but I’d highly recommend an injectable.
