Do any of you have delusions that effect medication effectiveness?

Some one recently suggested that I should be able to take oral medication since its Identical to injections. But every time I take oral medication, even if it’s the oral version of my current injection (Invega Trinza) I go psychotic with in a few days or a week depending on medication. I never really considered it as a possible delusion before but with schizophrenia anything is possible. Has anyone ever experienced this?

My theory on why this happens is that intravenous medication goes straight to the bloodstream and thus is more potent. Oral medication tends to lose potency as it passes through the digestive tract and liver. So it may just not be as effective for you, resulting in your psychotic symptoms coming through.

The thing is I’ve taken oral medication with my shot and it still causes psychosis.
