    I have used Rexulti 2x’s and have had success. I experienced ear ringing more than I usually do which became irritating. I was able to drop it not only because of the ear ringing but I was doing so well I felt it was time to let go of some head meds. Or so I thought. I fell right into the abyss of depression and everything irritated me. So I am back on it and doing very well. I noticed the ear ringing just a couple of times but so far it hasn’t become annoying. It is extremely expensive and if if could be approved for bipolar the price would come down or so I’m told. I hope it works well for you.

    I’m always fearful of new drugs. I hate trying them and having bad experiences. Sometimes they make me so sick. Others, my head hurts with racing thoughts and zaps! It can be very scary, but I keep on with my treatment. I pray one day I wake up and it’s gone for good. No more pills!

    I have depression, ADHD, PMDD accelerated by PCOS, and possible bipolar 2/personality disorder. While I was in outpatient I was put on Wellbutrin 300 and Effexor 150, I felt the irritability went down, my pmdd was a normal pms. but nothing changed with the mental struggle and impulsivity.. plus I was so excited to eat everything in sight.. 15 lbs in 5 weeks plus more stretch marks I couldn’t take it anymore.

    We started me on the lowest does or 35mg of Cymbalta but I had so much anger and irritability, crying/sadness, I suggested we focus on bipolar 2, which my dr suggested months ago and also why I’m now on week 1 of Rexulti. The only thing I notice is increased body temp, which I had terrible night sweats in Effexor so this is tolerable (and I’m in ND!!) and the zaps. Constantly. Sometimes everywhere at once. Not sure if it’s from stopping cymbalta after a short time or if it’s the Rex. No positive change in irritability or concentration. Even my adderall isn’t helping with that anymore. I almost feel like my blood is mercury, and it’s more euphoric and enhanced symptoms?? I’m a hot bitchy mess 🙁 I did call and we concluded to try one more week before I go back in..
