Has anyone came off of invega sustenna?


#534

I was taking the pills.


#535

I wish had the pills instead of the injection. The pills don’t take long to get out of your system.


#536

Invega was terrible. At one point I was on a high dose of the injection and 18mgs of pills daily


#537

Hang on, eventually it’ll get off your system. :slight_smile:


#538

Hey dude let me know if the Wellbutrin helps with the side effect of low libido bc that’s a huge issue for me and it’s really annoying especially at this age.


#539

Ok will let you know. Haven’t noticed any changes as of yet


#540

Thanks for the encouragement…How long does it usually take? It’s been 6 months for me…how many shots did you have? And what were your side affects?


#541

@gilbezr I’ve heard it can take 150 to 300 days. I had 4 or 5 injections. My last injection was November 2017. I don’t feel no improvement.


#542

That sucks. Looks like we’re in the same boat. How are you dealing with it? Everyday is tough for me. How are you keeping yourself going?


#543

@Luiyo how are you doing bro? Any improvement?


#544

I have no choice. I try to focus on the fact that, this too shall pass… I do nothing. Sit around Idol and wait. It sucks but like I said, don’t have a choice. How long was you on the shot?


#545

Ive been off the shot for 8 months now and i feel fine


#546

Yeah same here bud. I had 4 shots. 234,156,156,117


#547

How many shots did you have @anon20318121


#548

Quite a few i cant remember but i started on 150 mg shots and went down.

It was the worst experience of my life i thought i was going to die


#549

Its also called xeplion where i live


#550

I have sexual dysfunction due to risperidone.


#551

When u say u feel fine would u say u feel completely as u did off the shot? I know that may be hard to discern bc ur prob on a different med but I just mean the complete anhedonia and flatness that it causes, not to mention the inability to converse or think


#552

Good question bro…by the way where are you from? What state do you currently live in? @Calculat3d


#553

I’m from Wisconsin, near Milwaukee- wbu?
