Hi, Jenni! You should never just stop any medication without professional advice from your doctor. You could experience discontinuation symptoms and a recurrence of the symptoms it was originally prescribed for.
Sorry it's not working out for you. I've been on Vraylar 6mg/day for several years for my Bipolar disorder and I have to say it's saved my life and my sanity!
Just curious. Why do you want to stop taking Vraylar? Did you have too many side effects? I've read that it causes weight gain. Did you encounter this? Just wondering cuz I was thinking about starting it for bipolar 1 disorder.
I think like any medicine you should talk to your Dr. and he would have you Taper down or switch you to another Med. I have been on Vraylar for about 4 yrs.
