Sorry to hear that. I know what its like im still struggling everyday 5 and half months off. I recently got a pain in my lower back and i cant sleep anymore i was wondering if you have any aches anywhere. Whats your sleep like? Oh and it sounds like your recovering which is a good thing.
At times my muscles and joints ache like he'll also noticed a sore pins and needles feeling on skin but it comes and goes never had before being on sustenna sleep not so good I have been trying tyrosine and melatonin for sleep and to help my dopamine receptors to get working again seems to help
i used to take invega and it hurts like mofo,
Invega sustenna reduces the quality of life you cant work, study, work out or have a social life
I recommend switching to different anti psychotics
Ask your psychiatrist and research weight neutral drugs like abilify and latuda
Invega is really not that bad, you can definitely study and socialize on it and potentially work. As long as your dose is not way too high for you. My mind functions pretty well for me when I apply myself to something. I'm currently learning coding and my bass playing and music theory knowledge improved a lot since I was started on it.
It has kept me out of the hospital and I have quit drugs and heavy drinking while on it. Once you are clean, I believe you can achieve whatever you put your mind to. I personally like invega...I might add a micro dose of abilify to decrease my prolactin levels and have more energy, but even if I don't I feel like I have potential as I am.
I beg to differ pauly has music returned for anyone?
Invega sustenna does this if your a guy
Makes you get man boobs,
Causes you to have borderline diabetes,
Decreases sperm count, motility
Increase weight by 50 pounds or more.
Decrease muscle strength exponentially.
I don't have man boobs, I don't have borderline diabetes, sperm count I don't know, my weight has been stable on a vegetarian diet with occasional fish, and I still have decent muscle strength on 75 mg invega sustenna monthly dose.
It's just a smear campaign against invega everyone.
Things are better since ive been off invega but i still got problems that ive deal with like depression and paranoia
I’m in the same boat as you johnny only I got 8 injections and I’m only 3 months off. Do you excercise at all did that ever come back at month 8 people recover by 8-10 months but it doesn’t seem that way for people who got more injections. I miss running so you ever do that?
Hi undiminished I don’t run but do a lot of hunting and tramping etc I used to enjoy a few beers and socialising but this horrible drug has robbed me of all that but hoping dopamine receptors recycle and clear soon month 9 for me hope to feel better after 300 days and probably a bit more ? For receptors to come back I had the poison forced onto me by court order so I had no choice but it’s a big waiting game I think we will all get through it and get better in the end hopefully I feel a lot better than when I was on it
That’s what I read people are better than ever when they come off it. Is your energy getting better at this time? I’m still able to have sex but it’s a lot on my heart right now and not working out is my big blow right now but I’m dealing with it. It’s crazy there’s court orders for this poison and sympathize. How did you even get court ordered to that’s crazy especially if ur not diagnosed as skits or bi polar
I was coming off zopiclone sleeping pills and hadnt slept right for months I thought I was going mad the worst anxiety you could imagine suicidal thoughts etc I told my doc about it and I ended up in hospital they misdiagnosed me as skitzo and put me on invega since then I have been unable to find any joy euphoria or happiness in anything like nearly everyone that’s been on this poison has the same problem I’m hoping we all get better soon
What’s with this smear campaign? Isn’t it obvious?
Hi symbol how are you feeling now is your depression like anhedonia or just a sad feeling imat 9 and a half months invega free now still got no emotions feel dull cant get high what a terrible poison to give anyone anyway hope we all survive it
I had a similar experience except they didn’t reverse my diagnosis even though I still have doubts about my diagnosis. Invega sustenna effected me too, but in a much worse way…You should be happy your diagnosis was reversed.
When did u start to cry again
Mostly sad i have emotions but there blunted and high axiexty i have some other issues but i dont wanna discuss them here. Still deal with derealization. Its not as bad as though as when i was on invega
HAS ANYONE been able to feel emotions again joy or happiness after being on this horrible drug and how long did it take you
Hi there, yes my emotions came back alrite everything like that seems fine . sleep is normal everything seems to heal except the sex drive thing did not come back unfortunately. I’m doin well after it tbh but it does get me down sometimes.
