@coleen Thank you everyone for your input. I took the Vraylar as prescribed which is 2 times a week? Yes, she said it would be better for me to go very slowly so 1.5 mg 2 x week. I take another on Sunday. I hear pros and cons. I will go with it and see. One thing I want to say is that the psychiatric nurse did do the Gene Sight test on me. I asked about these meds to is offering and asked what the results of the Gene sight test indicated. She laughed and said I failed. Now how do you fail a gene test. Well, according to her, I was in the middle of all meds. There were no high or low, just yellow-nothing. Some meds had little little symbols indicating weight gain. I do not understand. She did send me a copy which I really don't understand. This test has high rating of being helpful. Not for me I guess. Has anyone heard of this before?
