Invega sustenna - how long it takes to show the result

Son just had first and second shots (one week apart) of Invega Sustenna. He seem really suffered from the shots. Doc said it will take 4 to 6 week. I want to wait and see but don’t want him to get the next shot (in a month) if it does not work.

For me it took months but I love the med now, I would give it more time for it to work to be honest.

I was on invega sustenna for three months and it didn’t work for me, I was anxious and manic all the time.

Speaking from personal experience, it took me about three months to start adjusting to Invega Sustenna.

I’ve been on the 234mg injection, once a month. It took between 5 - 8 months for the medication to work and all the positive symptoms to subside. The only thing I have to figure out is how to deal with the negative symptoms.
