    Comment:
    I had previously been on sustenna (1 month injection) for about 3 years when I switched to trinza (3 month injection) as soon as it was available. I've been on the trinza formulation for about a year. I'm happy with symptom control (no longer anger problems from paranoia etc.). However, I do still have anxiety episodes about twice a week (thoughts of harm to self and others).

    My son did great on Invega Sustenna for 7 months, and his doctor moved him to the Invega Trinza. Unfortunately, it seems to have worn off after about a month and a half, and he's now supplementing with oral paliperidone and experiencing symptoms. He wants to go back t the Invega Sustenna because the Trinza has just not been as effective.
