Hello, it will take up to two months to fully kick in, about week four or five I think you should see an improvement. If at 6 to 8 weeks you feel nothing, you may need to up the dosage as you have to get that dosage just right or you will get absolutely no relief. You have to hit the threshold of just right, i.e. not to little as no results, and not too much as you can get zombified if overdosed. See your doctor again in about 6 weeks for a re-evaluation and oh yeah, dont expect any results or improvement the first two or three weeks, that is the brain is getting adjusted time and saphris is swirling your brains hormones around like chocolate syrup in vanilla pudding, you have to keep stirring and allow time and patience until everything start to smooth out for you, week four should show and improvement and week five six seven things keep getting better and better (if on the right dosage) come week 6 to 8 and no results, see your doctor about an increase in dosage.
Good Luck... hope I helped.

Thank u BetterOff.

This is my first week taking Saphris 10mg with Black Cherry Flavor because the regular ones taste nasty.....lol....After I take it I feel a peculiar numbness on my tongue, my heart bit go up a little bit for 1 or 2 minutes then go back to normal, and after 5 to 10 minutes I start a getting a sleepy feeling and go to bed. :sleep_1:

I was taking it at 11 pm and when I got up in the morning I till felt drowsy (it was like I was high) so I called my Dr. and he said that I have to take them a 8 pm so in that way I won't have that drowsy feeling in the morning.

Once again, thanks for your input about the med. :smile:
