Risperdal invega

Common Questions and Answers about Risperdal invega


Avatar n tn You should speak to the psychiatrist who is working with him and ask them what their plan is. Invega is an antipsychotic that is clinically similar to Risperdal but longer lasting. I was on it for a while and I did not have these specific concerns. However I did from Geodon but each person responds differently to each medication.
Avatar n tn Most likely since Invega is basically a long acting version of Risperdal it took some time to get out of her system and she was experiencing akathesia (motor restlessness) and dystonia (hands shaking) which are temporary motor disorders.
Avatar n tn How does one switch from Risperdal Consta (50mg Q2wks) to Invega Sustenna??
1021784 tn?1306366611 Seroquel, Risperdal, Saphris, Invega, Geodon, Abilify I'm allergic to the medication Thorazine. I'm wondering if it's possible to be able to take Clozaril and Zyprexa together to help control my symptoms of Schizoaffective Disorder - Bipolar Subtype?
Avatar f tn The longer you take it the less you will care if you ever have sex again. I am obsessive about sex and my dr had to take me off of it so I went to Risperdal. It was a nice alternative after the transfer period. It kept the voices from getting me nuts. I'm on Invega now because the Risperdal ruined my blood pressure and sugar levels. Being diabetic sux rox but I'll live with it if I don't have to hear them telling me I'm scum all the time.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn I agree w/ the good doctor that you need to clarify why your prolactin is high. Several ant-psychotic/mood stabilizer medications do this regularly. I have seen it w/ Risperdal, Haldol & Invega. There is medication to bring down the prolactin, if you can not find a cause that can be fixed. Good luck!
Avatar f tn However if a person doesn't respond to one medication they can respond to a different one as each person responds differently to each medication. The other atypicals are Risperdal, Invega, Seroquel and Zypexa. The two newest atypical antipsychotics that work like Abilify are Saphris and Fanapt.
Avatar n tn what pain medication is safe for his body that dont go to the liver and anti depressants and anti anxiety???he now is taking paxil,vistaril,klonopin,fentenal patches,oxycodone,invega,neurontin,risperdal,zanaflex,remeron...please help....can we use natural like st.johns wart ext.....please help me with this i cant understand...
Avatar f tn That is a big problem for me considering I have an obsession with sex. It made me borderline diabetic and between it and the Risperdal that my new shrink put me on, I am now totally diabetic. I've been on psych meds since I was 23, now 37. 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.
477940 tn?1212967769 I was diagnosed with BP approx a month ago. I am on Invega 6mg twice daily. The mood swings have gotten a lot better but my anxiety and insomnia have not. I am 29wks pregnant and I know the medications I can safely use are limited. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions of what I should do. I am tired of this anxiety!!!
Avatar f tn If you don't go to the Pdoc you're just going to continue in this train till it ends in a low you might not recover from. Please go see your Pdoc. There is nothing wrong with saying that you need help and most Pdocs don't want to lock anybody up unless they're extremely harmfull to themselves or others. You're not depressed enough to do yourself a mischief so try the Pdoc first. Me tweeks happen all the time for all of us.
Avatar n tn We have done trials of Lamictal, Abilify, Seroquel, Zyprexa, Guanficine, Invega, Risperdal and now Geodon. Risperdal works great in bursts but then stops. The dosage has been upped several times. He has had a head jerk tic off and on since he was 6. It came and went but was never really prevalent. He also grunts and screams but again it came and went. He began falling down a lot recently and even fell at school and broke his nose. They said he didn't put his hands up to break his fall.
Avatar f tn The atypicals are Risperdal, Seroquel, Zyprexa, Geodon, Invega and Abilify. However, until the new antipsychotics such as the glutamate antagonists like I'm on are approved as medications these are the only medically availiable options and people should stay in treatment but since Clozaril is available that can and should be used if a person develops tardive conditions.

952564 tn?1268372247 I was on Risperdal for 3 months and the only reason that I went off of it was becuase of massive and very quick weight gain. If it was not for the weight gain, I would still be on it. I loved the way it made me feel. So calm and confident (once again, minus the weight).
5509687 tn?1369721731 I have tried Haldol, Zyprexa, Abilify, Seroquel, Risperdal, and Invega. I have had severe allergic reactions and over 50lbs./almost 75 lbs. in weight gain. I have always been very active physically and kept my diet healthy (well-rounded, home-cooked meals, avoid sugar and junk food. plus doing 50-150 sit-ups every night for last 6 weeks, with no change). I am only 5'3" and approaching 200 lbs. Just trying to figure out... what else I can do to lose weight?
202665 tn?1248810333 it's either epitol or invega. if your doc doesn't seem to know anything about this, find another doc!
603015 tn?1329866573 Some medications have extended release versions such as Seroquel, and Invega which is basically an extended release version of Risperdal. But with Depakoate and lithium from what I remember of them they are almost always given twice a day so that's why you would feel the effect. You can look up more information on any of the websites linked on the medications you posted about or ask your pharmacist for a print out and certainly ask your psychiatrist.
Avatar m tn But in 2 years I was on paxil, depakote, wellubtrin, seroquel, geodon, abilify, risperdal, invega, xyprexa, clozaril, ativan, clonadpin, clonadin, ambien, neurontin, so its a lot. I am seeing my surgeon this thursday. If I get a really common sense answer than I will just have to accept the fact the computer is causing too many problems for me, and I will simply have to stop using it.
1569123 tn?1332794330 Risperdal and Invega (the brand names for the medications you take) are anti-psychotics. The other medication sometimes known as Artane is used as a side effect pill to control temporary movement disorders from antipsychotics. You could ask your psychiatrist more about all this.
Avatar n tn I would like to understand why it isn't working. Atypical antipsychotics (Risperdal, Seroquel, Geodon, Abilify, Invega) are more effective than the older generation ones (Thorazine, Haldol) but they are generally what's in use regardless. But she might need a mood stabilizer as well if there are aspects of bipolar. You could discuss it here and I could give you some ideas to discuss with her psychiatrist.
Avatar n tn there are many atypical such as Risperdal, Seroquel, Invega and Abilify. Those are in standard usage and the recovery rate is far more favorable. And there are the future generation of antipsychotics, the glutamate antagonists that will not cause tardive dyskinesia (or any movement disorders) or diabetes and any of the side effects you mentioned and promote a fuller recovery.
605458 tn?1265086851 I'd like to know to for my own information as well. As for antipsychotics you haven't tried you didn't mention Geodon. And I found Invega more tolerable than Risperdal although they are similar in action. And regardless they are coming out with new ones. There may be one out in the next year depending and others to come. They will work similarily to Abilify but Risperdal works in a similar manner to Seroquel and you could tolerate that so if you did have to change there will be new options.
Avatar m tn Xaxax (1 mg, take one tablet daily) 4. Zoloft (Various pill sizes, the most I was ever on was 250 MG) 5. Risperdal (1 mg, take 1/2 to 1 tablet each day) 6. Lexapro (20 mg, taken once a day) 7. Clonazepan (1/2 to one tablet daily up to 3x daily) 8. Wellbutrin (I believe I was taking like 150 mg once a day) 9. Seroquel (Unsure, but I believe the largest dose I took was maybe 100. Used these for sleep) 10. Zyprexa (10 mg, take one tablet daily at bedtime) 11.

574118 tn?1305138884 The best thing is to discuss this issue with your psychiatrist and find the one most effective (the atypical antipsychotics from Risperdal onwards have the safest long term side effect profile) and build that up to a clinical dose and see if that is effective in combination with a mood stabilizer.
Avatar f tn My daughter used to be on Resperidal and gained lots of weight. Then the docotr put her on invega and just found out it is in the same family as resperdal. no wonder she keeps gaining weight. These doctors only look at well the bipolar is under control but don't worry about if you could get diabetes or if the weight could hurt your heart. We are looking for a different doctor because hers won't discuss changing meds and her ADHD med isn't working anymore. She is on staterra.
