I was just started on Saphris 5mg daily for bipolar disorder. All the literature I read is that it should be taken twice daily (either 5mg twice daily or 10mg twice daily). Can it be effective if only taken once daily----I have been on it a week with Latuda 20mg daily. But now I am only on the Saphris 5mg daily (at hs). I was started on this by someone in the mental health practice who has treated me for 12 years.
