> and it gets the job of protecting you from mania and psychosis done?

That is very astute of you. That is my hope. I did not experience a single manic episode during the 13 years that I took Abilify for. I have had manic reactions to MAOIs in the past. With a little luck, Saphris will help with depression and prevent mania.

I performed an experiment with Saphris. I stopped taking it. I wanted to be sure that it was absolutely necessary before moving on to months of different drug trials. I was so excited that I felt better on Saphris, but I wanted to explore the possibility that my improvement was due to the discontinuance of Abilify. After a week without Saphris, my bipolar depression deteriorated rapidly. I restarted it this afternoon. I allowed several days to pass before I began to descend into the abyss. I pushed and pushed as my conditionn grew worses and worse. I guess I have my answer. Now comes allowing the neuroendocrine systems to settle down under its new conditions. Once I feel stable, I will taper and discontinue Parnate in preparation for taking Trintellix.
