5th day of Rexulti. Abilify caused tics & tremors. Got off latuda..bad side effects. Also on Viibryd....no 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...
