I finally got to talk to my PDOC today, and she said I have two options. Either, I can increase my abilify from 25mg daily to 30mg, or she can start me on Invega.
I don’t know what to choose. Invega is way more expensive, but I feel like the Abilify is only helping so much.
And with both positive and negative symptoms slowly becoming more apparent, I no longer feel I can choose to do nothing.
Does anyone have any experience with Invega? Or both?
What do you guys think I should do?
Invega is awful , recommend abilify
Could you elaborate? Why is it awful?
Im on invega and cant see well ,cant sleep- have terrible restlessness sometimes and dont feel good on it. I felt better on abilify 20mg
I’m on invega, no side effects , had some weight gain at first. It saved me
@Mihail Ok, thank you for sharing
Anyone else have any experience with this?
I’m on Invega 9 mg and it’s the best AP for me, except weight gain. No hallucinating, no anxiety, no depression, etc etc. it works great on me
Invega 3mg here, weight gain but can still manage to lose if dieting and pretty stable, that’s it
I fear the weight gain, but I think I’m going to try the Invega.
It’s very expensive, but my father has offered to pay for it.
I just got a call from my school, and I have to start this semester on the 9th of august. That’s not enough time for me to get used to new meds!
What the heck do I do now?
I was on invega, 110 mg I think. i gained a ton of weight from it. I had restlessness side effects and trouble staying asleep, trouble concentrating and drowsiness, I went off it because of weight gain, I am now on 40 mg Latuda and it is not causing too much appetite increase compared to invega.
I took the injection form of invega btw. Also I just wanted to tell you that Jesus loves you very much
