6mg vs 4mg Invega

I am thinking of lowering the dose, would dropping those 2mg increase my energy and make me sleep less or lowering will bring my delusions back?

Talk to your doctor if you want to lower meds ! :ghost:

It’s risky.

Look, it seems like it’s just 2mg less but it’s more than just a lower dose, the effect of 6mg vs 4mg can be vary a lot, you really need an expert to tell you what dose to take, it could be not just a ‘lower effect’.

It brought back my delusions don’t do it

Did you switch to 4mg?

I went down from 9mg to 6 mg

I think the standard pill size is 3 mg, so you’d have to go to that.

I used to be on 3 mg Paliperidone and 1 mg Haldol, it controlled the voices as much as a higher dose did. There wasn’t much difference for me between that or, say, 6 or 9 mg Paliperidone, except that I was more tired and slept a lot longer (was hungrier too.)

I’m thinking of an invega shot lowered that consists of 4mg a day my biggest problem that I sleep for 13 hrs a day
