 5  Bipolar 2 with mixed episodes So far no side effects except for a very slight increase in hunger for the first week and a half period after that it leveled out. So far I really like this medication, I've been on at least 15 different ssris and snris and mood stabilizers. This is the only one that works for me so far, I could tell a difference after just a few days of taking it. I'm only on 1.5 mg but probably going to increase the dose this week to 3 mg and see what happens. So far so good F 36 28 days
1.5 mg 1X D

 4  Bi polar Nausea, agitation, restlessness, extreme exhaustion, lithe need to move Overall, I like it. It has stabilized my mood, but I can't get good sleep, and I can't stop twitching my eyes. Other than that I feel great. Will probably go back down to the 3mg as 4.5 is too high I think. M 31 4 weeks
4.5 1X D

 4  Bipolar II w/ Psychotic Features Nausea, dizziness I had a psychotic break a few weeks ago. Dr prescribed Vraylar in addition to my Lamictal. It is too early to tell for sure, but I really feel like this med could be the one. I am already feeling more level and my psychosis is really diminished. F 25 5 days

 5  Bipolar 1 Increased appetite, slight muscle spasms I tried Vraylar several months back and stopped because of the uncontrollable urge to move and switched to Latuda. Switched back to vraylar after Latuda made everything worse. I am on Congentin for muscle movements and so far so good. Iím hoping to continue on Vraylar because my moos feels very level so far. My family noticed a huge difference after day one taking it. F 28 6 days

VRAYLAR  (CARIPRAZINE HYDROCHLORIDE):  Cariprazine is used to treat certain mental/mood disorders (such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia). Cariprazine belongs to a class of drugs known as atypical antipsychotics. It works by helping to restore the balance of certain natural substances in the brain. This medication can decrease hallucinations, help you to think more clearly and positively about yourself, feel less agitated, and take a more active part in everyday life.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
