Invega Horrible Drug


I was given two shots of invega sustenna, the 234mg loading dose and then the 154mg starting does and it as been the most horrible experience of my life. I curse the doctors who prescribed me this horrible drug. I wake up at least three times per night, I can't focus on anything. I also suffer from severe anedonia and restlessness and have trouble verbalizing my speech when I try and talk, that is the most frustrating thing that I have experienced. I have done some research and many of the people's comments I read said it would take anywhere from 6 months to a year to get the drug out of your system. I pray it is not that long. If anyone has successfully gotten off this drug sooner please email me {edited for privacy} I really need to hear a successful story of someone coming off this drug.

Hello, Brett! How are you? I'm very sorry about what you've experienced.

The FDA does list the issues you've described as being possible side effects of this medication. You may also experience abdominal discomfort, nasal congestion, tremor and weight gain.

Unfortunately, there's really no way to stop them any sooner.

Can anyone that's been on this chime in? Does anyone have any tips that may help?
