I only took 5mg at night. Apparently it is normally dosed twice a day, but it is so sedating for me I can only tolerate a dose right before bed.

I guess my maintenance combo for me right now is Lamictal 150mg, Lovaza 2g, Klonopin 0.5mg + 0.5mg prn, and metafolin(Deplin) 3.2mg. and some Vitamin C and D.

And then the Saphris is added if needed and I'll usually take it for minimum for about 3 weeks and then go off it, or I've taken it for longer periods, I don't know what the FDA thing is on how long you can take Saphris, does anyone know if it has approval for "maintenance"?? It's certainly possible in the future I may feel like I do need to stay on Saphris for awhile. I have no problem with that if that ends up being the case...

I have had some success with treating depressive episodes with SSRI/SNRI but they don't really seem to help in the long run. They also don't help with anxiety at all for me. I don't have panic attacks, but often severe GAD, which then leads to me getting depressed...herpills
