Description

Saphris (Asenapine) belongs to class of medications called atypical antipsychotics. Asenapine is used to treat schizophrenia in adults. It is also used alone or together with lithium or valproate to treat symptoms of psychotic (mental) disorders, such as mania or bipolar disorder. This medication works by helping to restore the balance of certain natural substances in the brain (neurotransmitters).

Doctor's prescription is required to use this medicine.

Always take Saphris (Asenapine) as directed by your physician. Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Asenapine comes as a sublingual tablet to dissolve under the tongue. It is usually taken twice a day. Take asenapine at around the same times every day. Do not swallow, split, chew, or crush the tablet. Do not eat or drink anything for 10 minutes after the tablet dissolves.

Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

If you become pregnant while taking asenapine, call your doctor. Asenapine may cause problems in newborns following delivery if it is taken during the last months of pregnancy. Asenapine may make you drowsy.
