So I’ve been taking Paliperidone or Invega 6-9 mg since 2008 which helped me a lot with my psychosis.
However up to October 2016 I had gained about 30 lbs! So my doctor around that month prescribed Latuda Or Lurasidone as he said it’s a better drug and doesn’t cause weight gain.
He tapered Invega or Paliperidone over one and a half months. First he gradually increased dose to 160mg which is maximum
That max dose made extremely jittery so I’m now happy with 40 mg daily and my psychosis is under control.
However my only problem is that I goto sleep but every night I wake up at around 3:30 am and can’t get sleep beyond that time
So this is messed my days as I feel sleepy and tired coz of this insomnia
Is there anyway to lessen this insomnia without going back to Invega or Paliperidone? Thanks!
