  • I take it only twice a week .5 at a time for prevention of break through symptoms. I experience only about 1-2# weight gain that I can work off the rest of the week. When I am in a serious state of mania, I take 1-3mg day. This ALWAYS works

  • If you are on multiple medications be aware that the risk of serious side effects are higher. As soon as you experience any EPS take a dose of Benadryl & if that doesn't work go see your doctor asap or the hospital for a shot of Cogentin.

  • Weight gain is awful. About 40 lbs in 6 months but it keeps my mania and irritability under wraps so I guess I have to pick an evil.
