I have been taking Invega in pill form. I started at 3mg. 3 months ago. Recently this was upped to 6 and now am taking 9 and finding this very difficult (I hate the way I feel on this drug even if it is treating symptoms) because of the side effects. I know that all these drugs have a plethora of side effects and I hate all of them. But with Invega, will the side effects lessen? How long before I tolerate them or experience less of their misery? Also I am gaining weight and freaking out about my continual weight gain over the last two years. My Pdoc plans to increase the dosage even more; he says the increase will make it easier for me to tolerate the inj. The way I feel now, and the thought of a higher dose has not reassured me that getting Invega as an inj. will be easier. On the contrary I am more concerned than I was before. I'm scared. Comments about his strategy please? Also about any differences between the pills and the inj.? Perhaps he is just dosing me up to make me into a zombie so that I will agree to the inj.? I also take lithium and lorazepam.
