Anyone on invega( peliperidone ) and quetepine(seoquel) combo?

i want to try that combo

I am on INVEGA and its a great medication but the seroquel i did not like. I gained 50 pounds in 4 months using seroquel but everyone is different and won’t happen to most people. Seroquel was great for sleeping though. As soon as i’d take it i would knock out and fall asleep.

I do not recommend seroquel. Did not help with voices at all and made me gain lots of weight.

Everyone is different though. It might work great for you.

But if you take them both at the same time?

I have thought about trying Quetiapine with Risperidone (which is similar to Paliperidone).
2mg Risperidone twice a day for psychosis, and 25mg Quetiapine at night to help me sleep a bit better, but I never tried it as I went onto Chlorpromazine instead.
I get on ok with Chlorpromazine but psychiatrists don’t prescribe it much anymore because no one makes any money out of it.

Seroquel is prescribed at 2 dose ranges, the low dose is 25mg to 100mg a day and is used as a sedative, the high dose is 400mg to 800mg and used as an antipsychotic.
