 4  schizo-affective disorder Swelling of lower legs (edema?), heart problems were increased after starting, trouble sleeping, slowed thinking, imagination and creativity lessened, possible minor dementia, increased appetite - weight gain Had been on clozaril for 22 years then gradually weened off onto fanapt because of low white blood cell counts. After switching I had increased psychotic symptoms which gradually lessened. Makes me feel dopey - I feel I'm not as smart as I was. Overall I feel better with it especially as it works with the other meds. Must take with food. M 48 18 months

 1  schizophrenia Extreme edema in my extremities, lethargy AND insomnia, akathisia in my legs, fidgeting I'm still taking it, but I don't like it much. It's the fifth anti-psychotic the dr. has tried me on, and none of them have been very tolerable. (The akathisia does me in) I hate the side effects so much I stop taking it constantly, start to get ill, start taking it again, etc. F 38 45 days

I was trying to get up to 6 mg to control mania after giving birth to my daughter. The doctor said the normal dose is 24 mg and I only made it to 4 mg with severe problems.

FANAPT  (ILOPERIDONE):  This medication is used to treat certain mental/mood disorders (such as schizophrenia). Iloperidone helps you to think more clearly, feel less nervous, and take part in everyday life. It may also help to decrease hallucinations (hearing/seeing things that are not there). Iloperidone is a psychiatric medication that belongs to the class of drugs called atypical antipsychotics. It works by helping to restore the balance of certain natural substances in the brain.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
