Invega Sustenna

I’m supposed to start taking Invega Sustenna next Wednesday. Has anyone else taken it? How did it make you feel and did it work? I have a relapse of symptoms on average every three months even on medication. So my psychiatrist wants to try an injectable. Although June 2017 and June 2019 were my last two major incidents. Since this June (2019) I’ve been symptomatic.

I only had it once. It made me sick the day I had it and my arm hurt for several days.

My pdoc wants to switch me from invega sustenna to latuda because I have emotional flatness on invega. I start latuda next week.

The good thing for me was I havn’t noticed side effects on invega sustania. Not sure if it helps me much or not though with the thought disorders. I prefer only having to take it once a month too, or inject it i mean.

That’s great to hear @jassy22 ! Keep us updated on how it goes

It’s working very well for me. I much prefer it to taking pills. It works better for me with an antidepressant added.

My only gripe with it recently is it got infected where I had the injection. And the last two times I’ve had it it’s leavint lumps now.

I think I got a bad shoulder from getting injections there is my main gripe.

Good luch with the latuda @jassy22 it has worked great for me so far
