Has anyone been able to lose weight on invega sustenna? I’ve put on at least 20 pounds because of it If you have lost weight on it, what was your dosage and how did you do it? And did you eventually switch to another medication? I was thinking of doing that.
I’ve lost over 30 pounds on Invega shots. Could be that the shot doesn’t cause the same gain as pills.
I’ve only gained a few kg whilst on invega and that may have been due to bad diet.
I’ve lost like 10 kilograms since I started with Invega. Been using an app on the smartphone called Lifesum. It counts the calories u eat. And I’ve been on Invega injections since 2015. But most of the weight loss has been the last couple of months. Wanna come down to 80 kilos.
I also want to be 80-85kgs. Now I am 100
I’m at 86 now. Almost at the goal.
I gained alot of weight when on Olanzapin.
I gained 15kgs with risperidone. Now I am on olanzapine, haldol, abilify and I have not appetite
What did you do to lose weight?
Keep counting the calories I eat. I"m supposed to burn around 2000 calories per day in rest. So I try and keep my intake to 1700 per day. And any activities makes the weight loss go even faster.
But sure, on weekends I cheat a little. And the intake goes over 1700.
