So I have been on Invega for almost 2 weeks, just started on 12mg a couple days ago. I’m wondering what to do about Prolactin. Does Invega always raise Prolactin? Should I get my level tested to see if it’s high? And if it’s high, should I take something to lower the Prolactin levels or should I wait to see if I have any symptoms? I’m just worried now that I’ll start lactating and that’s a scary thought!
The present study suggests that adjunctive treatment with aripiprazole reduces the prolactin concentration that had been increased because of risperidone treatment. The effect occurs even when a low dosage (3 mg/d) of aripiprazole was used and achieves a plateau at dosages beyond 6 mg/d.
