Experience with Invega?

My pdoc was really pushing for me to get on Invega during our meeting today but ultimately I made it clear that I wanted to try Latuda first. The reviews on drugs.com are generally pretty bad and I rarely hear about people benefiting from taking Latuda on here so I have seen limited examples of success with Invega. Care to share your experiences?

I was on the highest dose shot of Invega. I felt like my mind was clearer. I was bummed I had to stop it when I could no longer get it covered by Medicaid. It’s like $2000 per month

Did it do anything for your positive symptoms?

Yes. I felt better on it. I still was told I had delusions bug I was a lot more functional on it. I’ve tried countless APs, and nothing helped clear my mind like Invega

I feel good on Invega. I’ve had some religious delusions and I can’t lose weight.

Invega has been good for me exceptttt it has taken away my interest in things and I don’t get a period anymore.

My only experience with invega was in injection form, and it gave me horrible akathisia that made me pace around the house nonstop and it lasted months after I stopped invega because of how long injections stay in your system.

If you ever try it I recommend the pill form. Leaves your system in days if you ever stop it.

They forced injected me with a massive dose of invega with no follow up or information about it, and then months later I had the worst symptoms I ever had. I eventually agreed to keep taking it after getting caught up in the legal-medical system in this beaurocratic penal colony. Immediately after taking invega regularly my above average cardiovascular fitness was destroyed and now after taking it for seven years I’m having trouble with my heart (palpitations).

I tried 3mg latuda and still had my voice. They increased it to 6mg and then my voice almost went away but my prolactin went high.

I was on Invega some time ago. It was good for my voices and paranoia then my tummy suddenly ballooned and it hasn’t gone back down to this day. It also gave me planter fasciitis which stopped when I came of it…very strange!!
