Back to 100mg Invega Sustenna or to change medications

I’m on 75mg and due to the fact that I’m having symptoms and the god delusion is still present I will try one month on 100mg, if the prolactin levels are too high after two weeks I will switch meds probably to Abilify.

My pdoc is concerned about the fact that I lactated and if it happens again I will change meds.

I hope it doesn’t happen again, but raising the dose again will probably do just that, so I’m guessing I’ll be changing meds in two months.

I don’t really want to but if it is the right course of action, than so be it.

Just remember, the therapeutic dose for abilify is 10mg. Just saying, as there seems to be a trend on here of people using 5mg somehow and doing quite badly on it.


If it comes to it, I’ll mention it to my pdoc. Thanks for the heads up

Here’s the prescribing information from the manufacturer.

You can search ‘otsuka abilify prescribing information’ to find it too.

What is your prolactine level?

Don’t know, will do bloodwork in a few weeks.

Well good luck @Minnii.

I might switch meds soon also, and yes I am very nervous about it.

My prolactin levels are just a bit raised but my Testosterone levels are very low, I’ll see what my pdoc says about it all.

Thank you @Wave good luck to you too!

I’m really nervous about changing meds too.

Thanks @Minnii - it’s natural to be nervous about switching meds, but it can work out just fine also.
