I get invega sustenna injection every month but i’m thinking about switching to the pills
@Jonathan2 i know that your on paliperidone pills. I was wondering if it has cured you of hallucinations and delusions?
they are good. ive never been on the injection but im considering the 3 or new 6 month. i was on paliperidone er pills for 3 years 2019-2022 and then i was on olanzapine but back on paliperidone since yesterday
Im on both the pills and the shot
Less side affects on the jab. Plus you can’t cock yourself up, if you stop taking them, when most of us have the idea at some point to stop them, cos we think we are well.
Palperidone did nothing for me but most don’t I think for everyone it’s hit and miss I find cardiologists know what works I know that’s a bit off topic but I find psychiatrists guess and actually one of them one time admitted he was guessing on what med will work and showed me a list of med names so yeah I wish it was more like cardiology or maybe I just got lucky with my heart
If the injection works I can’t see why the pill would be any less effective if taken as prescribed
It helps with hallucinations and I don’t have delusions anymore.
A friend of mine was on Invega pills 6 mgs with 3 other types of meds and got a blood cloth in his brain recently. I don’t think that the blood cloth in his brain was caused by the Invega. But now they’ve to give him meds through a sonde and that’s not Invega because that can not be crushed.
I’ll personally advise you to go by the injection. It’s simply too tempting to skip or stop pills when you feel well.
I talk from personally experience as I’ve been on the Clopixol depot for nearly 3 decades. I’ve was told that the injection works better than pills as it secure a steady state in the blood level.
