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?

I stopped taking it. Went back on Abilify. Perhaps, I should have given it more time. I hope it's working for you.

Rexulti was amazing but it completely pooped out after about a month. Started on 0.5mg and increased to 1. When I started feeling low, MD increased dose to 1.5mg and it was all over. They say the dose is 2 mg but I was so foggy and depersonalized on the higher dose. Not sure if I'll be stopping all together or just adding an SSRI. I'm so disappointed! I virtually had no side effects. Going back to the psychiatrist today after testing for ADD. Vyvanse has helped in the past but still super sad.

Started Rexulti 9 days ago. I have seen a big change in my obsessive thinking, which would cause anxiety and panic attacks.
I also am not hungry, so hoping there will not. be a weight gain.
I suggest that if recommended, please,try it.Of course l had depression before l tried using it , due to the anxiety.

Regarding Rexulti and it's effectiveness and side effects...I had great results with it treating my severe depression. More noticeable effects than anything I've been on in the last 15 years! I ramped up from 0.5mg to 2mg and the doc was trying to go for the max dose of 4mg. BUT when I hit 2mg, I started gaining weight at the rate of 5 pounds the 1st week! I immediately stopped taking it. I FINALLY lost 2 of the 5 pounds. After losing 50 pounds in 2016 and finally being the thinnest I'd ever been in my life, I wasn't going to risk gaining it all back. A couple of months later I tried Rexulti again and this time I gained 8 pounds in a week! I stopped taking it again. That was a month ago and I can't lose a pound no matter what I do or don't do! UGH!!!
