In my experience, Saphris is sedating, and I need to watch the dose because too much will over-flatten me. It is not brightening like Abilify, but I did not tolerate Abilify nor Latuda. I found both to be agitating. I am treating some kind of depression that has a cyclic nature to it, likely bipolar of some sort. I've corresponded with a couple of people successfully treating schizoaffective disorder with Saphris. Thinking back, I felt the onset fairly quickly, that is, I felt something positive from the beginning, however it took weeks for that to settle into more reliable positive change. Hope this helps....
