I’m grateful that I can come back to this support group when things start unraveling at home!
A quick update- my son whose AP quetiapine is being reduced gradually is starting to exhibit withdrawal symptoms. The pdoc is waffling between saphris and zyprexa. Has anyone had experience with both these APs? Which is better? My boy is not depressed so I’m not sure if Saphris would help him.
@Maggotbrane i have valued your insightful advice in the past and thank you for that. In the past, my son has gone manic after Rexulti and later after taking the antidepressant Pristiq. So I know for sure that anything that bumps up the dopamine is a no-no for my son. Are you familiar with Saphris? Is it an activating AP? Rexulti resulted in my son losing total control over his words and actions. Recently a naturopath advised him to take CoQ10 and this supplement caused him to be hyper and angry. All this is so confusing!
If anyone has some knowledge about Saphris I would really appreciate some help here. Thanks!
