Akathisia on invega?

Anyone whose experienced akathisia on invega have it go away after some time?

They want to switch me in an abilify injection so we are cross tapering. I’ve been on invega for 6 weeks and we still haven’t found a therapeutic level and I’m experiencing bad akathisia. We’re switching because of the akathisia.

My pdoc told me that they can’t treat my akathisia with ativan anymore and other treatments for it will just cause more sideffects. I’m getting frustrated with these medications I just want relief without having to trade off so much.

I heard you switched to Abilify Maintena because of your akathisia on Invega.
Did the akathisia go away after you’ve switched to Abilify? and what dose of Abilify are you taking?

Typically, we like to leave inactive threads alone and just start a new thread instead. This is different than how some forums are run, but we do it this way because it frequently upsets users to have old topics revived when they are no longer relevant. It can also be frustrating to the person who revived the thread when they don’t get a reply, because the original poster is no longer active or no longer finds the topic relevant. Feel free to start a new thread on this topic.
