I was on Saphris for a few months and I LOVED it, but my doc took me off of it in the end because she thot it was making me manic-y. But what I loved was I felt more of my true feelings. Usually I am pretty dulled, or super-non-reactive, but on Saphris I could cry, I also got excited about doing things (instead of just a "whatever" or "too much effort" attitude).
I know the "cry" ability is a weird thing to miss, but my Signif Other died 10/23/09 and I didn't feel like I really responded, much less got tearful. Once on the Saphris, I cried more about Jimmy than I ever had before... I could feel my greif. I lived with him for 9 years, and even so, my greif was blocked by whatever I was on before, stuck inside, just leaving me with a pit of undigested berevement in my stomach.

You can't drink Alchohol on these meds or if you have mental disorders, it can cause coma, death & a whole other host of problems & on most of these meds one drink is like having 4 drinks because it intensifies the effect & causes your meds not to work correctly. Please think about what your doing & try to not drink, you don't need it & it causes depression among other things, Alchohol is a depressant in itself. Good luck !!!
