Depends: After starting Saphris (asenapine), (asenapine) desired effect may be achieved but may be subtle for some. And the purpose of Saphris (asenapine) is important too. If for depression or bipolar disorder, the effect may not be noticed due to the ability of Saphris (asenapine) to prevent the undesired feeling. Best to ask your doctor.
