> I hope so, too. Why is this logical? What do you need Rexulti to do for you? Just curious.

Well, i could use an antipsychotic that is less prone to causing weight gain, i could use less daytime sedation and i could use an antidepressant. So it may help as an Antidepressant, it may help as an antipsychotic or it may do both.

> A few questions.
> Will you continue with Seroquel and Zyprexa while you try Rexulti? If Rexulti helps, what will you do with these two drugs?

Yes i will continue. If i respond favorably will probably reduce these two drugs. Reduce and/or redistribute them to later in the day.

> What does Seroquel do for you? What does Zyprexa do for you?

Serouqel knocks me out when i want to sleep and Zyprexa mellows me out. I think that both drugs help positive symptoms equally.

> Have you ever tried Abilify?

Yes. It was pretty cool except for akathisia. I felt a mood lift and i did not have delusions.

> Rexulti should be less likely to cause akathisia than Abilify. I found that Rexulti did not help with depression. Interestingly, a friend of mine had to increase her dosage of Seroquel once she added Abilify in order to prevent delusions.


> Good luck with Rexulti.


Seroquel 900mg :(
Zyprexa 25mg :(
Trazodone 75mg
Venlafaxine 37.5mg
Metformin 2000mg
Lithium 250mg
8333 IU Vitamin D3
