My wife was on Invega for 7 days (6mg twice a day) She stopped taking the drug after being released from the clinic. It's been a month since she stopped taking the drug and both her hands tremble all the time now. She feels complete fatigue but inner restlessness. She has take no other medication ever. My question is how long does a drug like Invega stay in you? When can she expect the side effects to subside? We are very worried, any information would be greatly appreciated.
I was forced to take Invega Sustenna injection at 100 mg a month for 10 months. It gave me severe anhedonia soon afterward. I cannot feel joy or pleasure and everything seems worthless and boring. I have no motivation or willpower to do anything and just getting out of bed or showering seem to be impossible tasks. I have no sex drive and I constantly feel restless and despair. Things that used to give me pleasure all have stopped working like cigarettes or alcohol.
I know these are symptoms of the drug.. now long can she expect to have these symptoms? How long does it take for the drug to be completely out of her body? She is a very positive, active person and these symptoms are wearing her down.
I am without invega now for 2 days and placed on zyprexa taken so far 2 days. Can anyone tell me when I will feel better. I am exhausted, listless, get dizzy When standing and terrible nausea. No appetite. I also have ideas of reference in my Psychosis. High anxiety. He also put me on cogentin for uncontrollable muscle Movements of my tongue rubbing my teeth all day. This is day 3 and it's still happening. I guess it's a lot of mental strain changing all these meds at once.
You should discuss with your doctor how to taper off the drug. A lot of medications need medical supervision in weaning yourself off them. Some can cause seizures, etc and these can be dangerous. It would be best to discuss your concerns, etc with your doctor.
You should ask your psychiatrist about it. It may be that Invega isn't a good drug for you (since I'm guessing that one's the culprit). Switching to taking it at night might help, but I would ask your doctor about when side effects might subside or if you might consider something else.
The doctor gave me lexapro and invega, the invega was 6mg. the doctor only prescribed 3mg but they gave the 6mg samples and told me to cut them in half and gave me no info on the drug. i cut the pills in half and took it for 3 days. on the third day i drank for sips of a beer and then a cold feeling ran from my feet throughout the rest of my body and my heart was pounding when the ambulance got there my vitals were off. they eventualy went back to normal.
You should consider going to the government FDA (food and Drug Administration) site and sending in an adverse drug effect report. This helpful to the drug company and other physicians. It is not a complaint against your physician.
Hi 7 months ago i was given a drug called invega that is time released and i was instructed to cut it n half and take it wich almost killed me. This drug is known for causing arythmias by prolongation of the QT interval. I have since stoped taking the invega. I dont take any drug, not even asprin.
The drug was named invega, yes I was, and no I dont take it anymore, I only took it 3 times, the 3rd the time that I had the reaction. I never had any health problems before the drug and the ekgs have shown my heart rythm to b normal but im afraid that it has damaged my arteries or nerves.
I take zoloft, invega, and lithium. I often forget to take them. By taking my meds irregularly.. am I hurting myself?

I have been on Seroquel for a couple of years but the Invega is new. About 3 weeks I have been on Invega. The combination is working very well for me and my mood is great so far. I am packing on the pounds though. I quit smoking back in October and have already gained 25 pounds from that. Over the last few weeks, I have gained another 6 pounds. I'm pretty positive it's the medication.
I will turn 24 on july30, I am 6'1'' 285lbs and i smoked a pack a day till just recently. 5 mos. ago i took a drug named Invega wich is an antipsycotic but was given to me for bipolar disorder. This drug is a revoloutionary drug in that field in that it is a time released capsule of palpharidone wich should never be crushed, chewed, or cut before taking. Unfortunately I didnt know this at the time.

My brother-in-law is currently being seen by a psychiatrist who was giving him free samples of Invega (6mg) but said that he can no longer supply this at no charge. He also said the dose needs to increase to 9mg. So again, we're trying to figure out a way to help pay for this as it's VERY expensive to say the least and this is just one pill that he needs to take of many. Thank in advance for any input!
Depression Welbutrin 300mg Invega 6mg Lamotrigine 200mg Zoloft 100mg I've been taking Zoloft 100mg for some time now. It started a month ago, but every day I would get a nasty, nervy feeling about two hours after taking my zoloft. The feeling would just be icky all over, as if the body was just "not right" It wasn't a depression, it was a physical thing. Oh yes, and yawning is very frequent and very unpleasant. Recently, It has gotten worse.
Other criminal and civil suits are still active, says the firm, which has been under investigation for Risperdal marketing practices since 2004. The company's follow-up antipsychotic drug, Invega (paliperidone), is also under scrutiny.
I lost 90% of my sex drive and it has'nt come back . I did'nt connect my problems with the drug until recently and instead got cat scans etc to find out the cause of my problems . I graduated a top flight college with honors but could not attend med school because of my health probs and chronic pain . I'm shocked to find out these drugs are only tested for a few weeks and not monitored post approval.
I started 5 Mgs of zyprexa about 5 days ago for psychosis, mostly "ideas of reference" the zyprexa is now added to my seroquel since I weaned off invega. So far, I am having less ideas of reference but not totally gone. Didn't expect a miracle in taking it less than a week. Can anyone please let me know their experience with zyprexa. How long it took to work and how it helped you. I would appreciate any advice and information on it.
As far as the drug lithium, it's usually the most common drug prescribed to those with bipolar just for the reason that it usually helps the quickest and the best out of all other drugs but yes, there are a bit of cons behind it as well that can make it less appealing but all drugs have their life threatening side effects, including death. Have you also considered alternative treatments to the bipolar disorder?

I was recently diagnosed with anxiety after a reaction to invega. I have since been having many symptoms that im told r symptoms of anxiety with a phobia. I try to believe its just anxiety but its very hard to. For the last 2 days along with the constant pains and fear of death and blood clotts ive been experiencing muscle spasms and, I feel vibration in my right foot, I went to the e r this morning and had the foot x rayed and it was fine.
I don't think the machine is widely available yet, but I was fascinated to see that the little boy they tested was found to not be a good candidate for a stimulant drug. The reason was that the stimulant drug would affect the wrong part of the brain as well as the target area in his case, and when that happens, concentration improves, but there would have also been side effects of angry outbursts and rage.
I think your initial problem five months ago was caused by an allergic reaction to the Invega drug. I presume you have stopped that drug, altho you did not say. I also presume you have stopped the Lexapro, you did not say... if you are still on it, please talk to the prescribing doc about tapering off it, would be my advice. If they insist you be in on an SSRI, switch over to Zoloft instead.
I saw the doctor the other day and now my meds have been changed to a higher dose and to a new drug called Paliperidone (Invega). Seems to be working well. I'll keep everyone updated in a few more days.
I don't advocate this drug to anybody because in my personal opinion, it's a very dangerous drug. All psych meds have risks but this one was the worst I was ever on. My opinion tho, so don't request off of it if it actually works for you but if you're having problems, get off it asap. I weighed in at 195 when I started it but now I weigh 265. I was on Risperdal for over 4 years so that one had a weight side effect too but it kept me stable.
I have had Bi-Polar for 19 years now and Ive been filled up on every drug to hit the market - all they have ever done is to turn me into a zombie and give me untold side effects!!! for e.g. i am easily 15-20kgs overweight thanks to medications. I have been off medication for about a month now. I suffer from cervical and lumbar degeneration so this means there are times where i need to take heavy painkillers.
