I have used Saphris in the past for depression and it helped me. The other AP I tried were Geodon and Abilify, which did not help. Abilify maybe a little bit, Geodon did nothing for me and depression.

My pdoc thinks Saphris can help depression.

It's FDA approved for mixed episodes...depression is part of a mixed episode, so...

I don't take Saphris right now becuase I'm doing fine on my maintenance combo and don't need it. However Saphris is definitely my go to drug when things get rough for me. Sometimes I'll just take it for a couple weeks. At one point I did stay on it for about 9 months.

I'd say you've got nothing to lose at least try it if you aren't feeling well. Good luck.
