I don't see how people take the Saphris in the day time. Because of it's half life, most people also take a day time dose. I can't. I will be asleep.

Oh well, so far so good.

Oh okay, i thought topamax was more of an upper..it has been awhile. I think i took topamax to help with hunger control.

It's supposed to help suppress appetite, but I don't notice a difference.

It apparently didn't help my appetite.

Seroquel did that to me.

Saphris is expensive and it's only been out over a year..so it will be awhile before we can get it cheaper. Of course! It dissolves in your mouth and it tastes pretty bad. I've got used to it now but it also makes your tongue tingle...lol
