My son is on this medication for schizophrenia. My son has been on this shot for about 9 months now and it has helped his symptoms considerably; he is more communicative and is resting better on this medication than any other he has tried recently.

Invega sustena is easy to take once monthly. I would recommend a stronger dose than 117mg for someone looking to reduce auditory hallucinations.appetite increase is tolerable.

Miserable from several side effects often. Mentally blank or poverty in thoughts. No emotions. Restless. Weight gain. Dead sex drive. Poor memory, focus, concentration, and learning.

Was diagnosed with Schizophrenia in 2016. Have been prescribed Invega for approximately 3-4 months. It has helped with my symptoms. I've gained a lot of weight.

Caused me to gain weight, affected prolactin levels in the chest area. Haven't been able to lose weight at 34 due to severe injuries. Wouldn't recommend this medicine to anyone. At first it worked like a miracle drug then suddenly stopped working.

I was on the medication for over a year and felt like I had been given a miracle. Then one day it stopped working. Tried other medications that did not work. I am currently on clozapine which has stopped some of the symptoms but not as good as invega. Does it happen often that invega stops working?
