I wouldn’t. (AP injection)
I got offered the 3 month one. I declined.
I wish there was an injection for whole life
does that exist? LAI that works for 6 months? Mine only works for 2 weeks but it’s ok.
i would take it. i hate going to the hospital for shots and seeing my psychiatrist every 3 months. just 2 shots a year, i’d be down for that. right now, im getting an injection every 3 months, or 84 days exactly. i lost a lot of weight when i went from a shot a month, to every 3 months, like 30 pounds.
If its cheaper than pills, yes. It would be the Risperdal shot. Do they make it for 6 months or 3 months?
I’m on a three month injection now. I feel like it fades off towards the end. I also have a lot more anxiety and paranoia attacks now. I’m thinking about asking the doctor to switch meds
My doctor told me they are researching a 1 year shot.
No it doesnt exist yet
Oh wow link???
I don’t have a link. Just going by word of mouth through my doctor
Shots cost a lot more than pills unfortunately
I’m lucky my Medicaid covers my shots. Or else I’d be on a pill.
yae i’m lucky that healthcare pays most of the costs of my shot.
i pay 8 or 9 euro for risperdal consta 50mg 2 weekly. But i only pay that cause i get extra reduction from healthcare… the normal price here is like 30 euro.
Risperdal Consta is usually given once every 2 weeks. Perseris is usually given once every month.
Perseris is the new long acting injectable.
It’s the latest Risperdal version.
I don’t pay anything for the shot. It’s totally covered by my insurance. It’s a 10 week dosage. Supposed to be 12 but I feel like it wears off.
There is an invega Trivecta or Trinza? that lasts 3 months i think.
But i wouldnt - cos when i get the jab monthly, it means i get the oppurtunity for 30 mins to talk about how im doing at home. I value their input - and having the monthly 121 chat does help whilst im have me jab done.
No because what if you get NMS? You would be screwed they couldn’t get you off the meds
