Why would my psychiatrist give me samples of Vraylar 1.5mg? I suffer from anxiety & depression... not bipolar! Is anyone taking this drug? Taking Xanax for my anxiety, Lyrica for fibromyalgia, meloxicam for my Stenosis & osteoarthritis, omeprezole for upset stomach & acid. I saw him today he told me that I was not feeling well on Duloxetine 20mg. I have only been taken that drug since June of this year. He lowered my dose down from 50mg, then 40mg, then 30 & then 20mg. Started to take it every other day now! He mentioned to stop it completely! So, he gives me 14 sample pills of Vraylar 1.5mg to try. I looked it up and don't like the side effects that I see. If anyone is taking this drug please let me know! Would appreciate your comment. Thanks for your answer

Afraid to even try the samples of Vraylar.....what I've seen on Drugs.com so far is disturbing to me. Don't need any more surprises of side effects. Have enough problems w/upset stomach & nausea.

Does anyone care to answer this question? Would really like a comment!
Hi Ros 2. No wonder you are feeling so miserable. Almost all the medications you’re taking have interactions with each other. If I was you I would never start another drug! I am not a doctor but I am someone who has experienced the nightmare of taking too many medications together that can cause problems. Another thing is that your doctor is taking you off Duloxetine way too fast. These drugs should be tapered off very slowly. I’m sorry for what you’re going through and I hope you get the help that you need. You can research the interactions between these medications on here and you will see what I’m talking about. Please take care and I hope more people will help you with answers. Cindy
Vraylar is indicated for Bipolar 1. You don't mention any symptoms of that type. I am Bipolar 1 and I won't go near that drug. I've read the profile too. Too many side effects for me to even consider it.
Ask this doctor WHY he prescribed this for you?
