Rexulti and worsening depression

I have been taking .5 milligrams or Rexulti once a day for 2 weeks. My depression seems to be getting worse. Any thoughts? ## Rexulti is an antipsychotic, and it has been known to cause worsening depression, and other mood changes, as side effects, in some people that take it. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, and weight changes. Please inform your doctor of what you're experiencing, since this might not be the right medication for you. Are you on any other medications?

Rexulti working well for me

Having good results. Feel the best I have felt in a long time. Started 0.5 for one week now finishing my 1st week of 1mg. I don't seem to have any side effects. Very happy with this medication so far. Fingers crossed. ## Have you experienced any side effects, yet? The FDA lists its typical ones as possibly including nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, weight gain and feeling restless. Is anyone else on this medication? ## Hi. Nothing out of the ordinary. Dry mouth. And sometimes dizzy when I get up to fast. Have you tried it yet? It's worth trying. ## Did it do anything good for you though?

Utah Medicaid - staying off the hit list [REXULTI / ABILIFY]

My prescriber wants me to take a very expensive psych med called Rexulti (~$1,100/mth), and tells me that Medicaid won't drop me for doing so. If you know Utah politics, they are still fighting ACA Medicaid Expansion and finding ways to reduce Medicaid programs such as PCN. I feel that if I take such an expensive medication, that puts a target on my back to be dropped at the first excuse. The state Medicaid office and pharmacies will not tell me how much each is paying, so I am left to guess if they have worked the price down, or if it's the bullet I think it is. As an alternative, I am thinking of taking its analog Abilify (aririprazole). But the problem is the same, they won't disclose pricing and Utah Medicaid refuses to pay outside Utah such as a Canadian pharmacy that s...

Rexulti reviews

5th day of Rexulti. Abilify caused tics & tremors. Got off latuda..bad side effects. Also on improvement with it. ## Hello, Lenats! How are you? Have you experienced any side effects? The FDA lists the typical side effects of Rexulti as possibly including nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and weight gain. Has anyone else been on it who can share their experience? ## Mostly dry mouth. Not too bad though. ## I've been on it for 3-4 weeks and I've been having a lot of nausea and bloating. Not sure if it's related or not. I feel almost like I'm pregnant but my husband had a vasectomy a year ago so that seems unlikely. ## I'm on Wellbutrin 150mg. deplin 15 mg and .5mg of Rexulti. I feel so much better and hope it continues. I have been so inactive from depre...

Rexulti for depression

Has anyone started taking Rexulti, if so how is it going so far. I just started 1 mg today and will phase out abilify? ## Hello, Darwin! How are you? Is the Rexulti working for you? The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, weight gain, orthostatic hypotension, seizures and impaired judgment. Can anyone that's on it chime in with their experiences? ## Just started Rexulti .5mg... having some nausea and headache... not sure it's side effects... got off Latuda. Still on Viibryd. Anyone have experience with any of these? ## I stopped taking it. Went back on Abilify. Perhaps, I should have given it more time. I hope it's working for you. ## I only have slight dizzying and dry mouth. Actually not hungry. So very, extremely glad I am taking it . This is ...
