10 Nov 2013 Saphris is helping me tremendously but I wake up every morning with severe pain in the joint area of my hip. I am hoping this goes away with use but if not I will have to stop taking this. I can barely walk in the mornings and can feel it throughout the day. However my mood and overall outlook on life is 1,000 times better. Which is why I hope that the joint pain does decrease because I've never been this happy and 'normal' in my life
