I started taking fanapt today. I'm taking it for mood stability; anxiety; and anger issues. I just had a few questions. What are common side effects You or someone you know may have experienced? (I've read them already, just like to know what people have personally , not just from trials and such.) I know weight gain is a side effect, is that just from the medicine? Or from increased hunger to make you eat more? If you take it before bed, will it still be effective the next day? Thank you! Answered by Rolanda Schoeman 6 months ago.

You can look it up by name (Fanapt), type in side effects. In studies, side effects of Fanapt included: Dizziness -- i Drowsiness -- Muscle spasm Pink eye, blurred vision Confused Abnormal Movements of Face Muscles I think the drowsiness, blurred vision and maybe muscle spasm might give the effect you describe. There is no way to change the action of the drug, but perhaps the unacceptable feelings will You will have to go back and talk to your doctor if you find the way it affects you unacceptable. Nobody but your doctor can change the dose or suggest how to avoid the way it affects your eyes. Answered by Jaye Dicesare 6 months ago.

My Doctor wants me on one of the following anti-pyshcotis Saphris Fanapt and Closerall Sorry for the spelling. I told him no to each of them. My 80mg of Latuda haven't been working. I said no to the fanapt because I heard it makes you lose sexual desire/function. I said no to Saphris because it dissolves under your tongue for like 10 minutes, and heard it causes Gum/teeth problems and I said no to the closerall because you need blood work soooo often. What other negatives come from these? I want some back up for when I see him so I can prove my case that I DO NOT want these medications. I want to try invega. But he's not crazy about that. I'm not sure why. probably because it's so close to risperdal. But risperdal worked semi-decent for me. My symptoms are getting worse and I need something new, but I'm running out of options. I've been on everything. ( Except what I wrote ) I'm almost 21, Paranoid Schizophrenic ( not sure if that mattered but I'll add it. ) Also.. does Schizophrenia get worse over time? Mine seems to be. Answered by Shaquita Mansfield 6 months ago.
I don't know why he wouldn't want the Invega. Sexual dysfunction is a side effect of ALL the antipsychotics, so you might want to consider the Fanapt. And the dissolving of the Saphris does NOT cause gum/teeth problems -- don't know where you're getting your information. Clozaril works great from what I hear, but yes, the frequent bloodwork is a pain in the a**. I would try for the Invega again, if you want, but don't fear the other two, Fanapt and Saphris. They are better than Risperdal, Seroquel, or God-forbid, Zyprexa. Schizophrenics who remain on the med that works best for them, actually have very good long-term outcomes. Some of them can eventually be on very low dosages of meds, or none at all. You need to get to a place that's good for you, with a doctor that's good for you, in an environment with people who are compassionate and help you how you need to be helped. It may take years. Look for those who are kind and understanding. Don't stand for anything less, if you can help it....the system sucks for many most of the time. But the system doesn't suck for all people all of the time. Sometimes, it actually works for you. Look for that, and don't give up hope. Good luck. Answered by Ariane Shultz 6 months ago.
Isn't the arena at colossal a fantasy? Yes, that's a query, now not a assertion. I might now not move via this test. I am now not any person that believes in a burning bush or any person going for walks on water, and many others. I think the ones matters to be symbolism for that targeted religion... I don't think in plenty of what David Blaine or that one man who is acquired that exhibit "Mindfreak" do. David Copperfield, nope. What they are doing is not even symbolic. They may not be written within the historical past books... Ok. I'm off the factor. The intent those humans think what they do is on account that there is not any proving it both method and their mothers and fathers mentioned it used to be real. It isn't rather a fantasy.

Hello, i ve been prescribed Seroquel 400 mg for my paranoia but i find that this drug is not taking away my symptoms but on the contrary, right after i take it, the symptoms increase. Could this problem be dose related? Is this dose too small, and would i see an improvement if i increased the dose. Also if seroquel doesnt work at the end, i have been considering trying out fanapt. Has anyone had any good experiences with Fanapt? was it a good medication for you? and if so why? Thank you Answered by Velvet Wenclawiak 6 months ago.
Seroquel is a highly effective antipsychotic with very few side effects, but just as every antipsychotic, it take about 3 weeks for the full effect to be shown. If you feel that the dosage is not right, talk to your psychiatrist before changing it (otherwise you will run out before you can get more). Fanapt is more recently on the market, and is an atypical antipsychotic. Your psychiatrist will probably hold off on prescribing it until he has proof that your schizophrenia is atypical in appearance and will not work well with medications that have proven track records.

ANYONE USED THE NEW MEDICATION CALLED FANAPT BEFORE?
Asked by Geralyn Yonkers 6 months ago.
No yet,but I would like to take it because other medications don't help me. My doctor advise me that some of the most common side effects of Fanapt include drowsiness, dizziness, and nausea. Side effects of this anti-psychotic medication tend to be minor and are typically easy to treat. However, certain side effects, such as rapid weight gain, fainting, and difficulty breathing, are potentially serious. We see what he suggest at next visit. Good Luck! Take care always...

I've been out of breath too easily, my heartbeat will pound hard, but not often, and I'm constantly in a dazed state. I've decided to stick with the medicine for the next week to see if it even helps, but has anyone else heard of or experienced this? Should I be more concerned? Answered by Camila Picerni 6 months ago.
I agree with Millie -- do NOT take these drugs unless you have a diagnosis that requires them! Always ask if it is an antipsychotic, and if it is, refuse it. Period. There are very serious side effects with these drugs -- including suicide, aggressive behavior, depression, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, sudden ischemic attack (of which it sounds you are close to) and much more.....drop it. Answered by Chuck Lovins 6 months ago.
I would not take antipsychotics unless absolutely necessary (for instance, i take it for schizophrenia). Ask your doctor if there is something else you can take which is not an antipsychotic. Don't wait call your doctor now these are serious side effects. Answered by Michal Mendez 6 months ago.

Dizziness and hypotension are common side effects for this medication. It would be up to you whether you stop taking it until you can see the Dr, but there is no emergency so to speak. I would avoid driving, recreational drugs (including alcohol), exercise or standing up quickly. Answered by Ofelia Heberlein 6 months ago.

I ran out of my anti-psychotic meds and I think I'm getting withdrawals?
I've only been on Fanapt for about a month, the pills I were taking came in sample boxes so I don't have a prescription. But they were working very well. If I go to a hospital, you think they'll just give me a prescription or something? And I am in the U.S.
Asked by Toya Kellstrom 6 months ago.
On Sunday I noticed I ran out of my Fanapt by taking the last one. Monday was a holiday so I couldn't call my psychiatrist..I didn't do it yesterday either, and I already had an appointment with him for this Friday. Should I wait? Today is day 2 without Fanapt and I feel really nauseous and jumpy and have twitched a bit. My chest kind of hurts, too. Are these because I stopped taking the Fanapt? Is it going to get worse?? What do I do? Answered by Jae Carranzo 6 months ago.
Iloperidone (Fanapt) is a pretty potent medication. It isn't a good idea to go for any period of time without your regular dose. I'd wager the symptoms you are having are related to withdrawal of some kind. I would advise that you call your psychiatrist's office and explain the situation, they should be able to arrange a prescription for you (at least they would in Australia, where I am). I'm unsure of how the laws work in the US (I assume you are American?) but in Australia your regular pharmacist can dispense a limited quantity of a regularly dispensed drug on an 'owed' prescription to get you by until you see your doctor. Failing all of these go to your local hospital or general practice. You are in a predicament and it would be incredibly ignorant and unethical of them to turn you away. Answered by Jonathan Shramek 6 months ago.
Yes you should definitely call your doctors office, they can call in a prescription to a pharmacy for enough pills at least to get you through to the appointment. Normally a pharmacist would be able to give you a few pills just to tide you over, but it sounds like the doctor just gave you a box of samples rather than an actual prescription, in which case that option is out the door for legal reasons. These medications are probably because of being off the medication, and they may get worse, I would call the doctors office as soon as you can, I realize they are likely closed right now, but if you call most doctors offices even after hours they will have an answering service or a physician on call so you can deal with this sooner rather than later, I would advise doing that. Answered by Franklin Dalleva 6 months ago.
You can ALWAYS call your psychiatrist, 365 days a year. That's what he/she is paid to do! Call your psychiatrist. He/she should have samples to get you through. If you still have an active prescription, the pharmacist will lend you some tablets from your next refill. Answered by Lavinia Mercardo 6 months ago.
