My friend said they have identified her daughter as a schizephrenic (sp) ## Invega is a name brand for Paliperidone. It is an antipsychotic medication. ## Thanks Vernon for your response. What does that mean though? Anti-psychotic, what types of patients is it prescribed for usually, is it for Schzophrenics or what. She had been on lots of medications for 20 yrs., and then the last one was Thorazine, they took her off that and have her on this Invega. Do you have anything else to add?

People who had only a psychotic break and took invega experienced the hell...

Paliperidone Palmitate

Does IM injection Paliperidone Palmitate (Invega Sustenna) lose potency or become unsafe if it has been stored in far above room temperature for a few weeks? ## Hello, Ally! How are you? Yes, it would most likely be best to dispose of it. Liquid medications tend to degrade very fast, when not stored properly. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks for your reply, Verwon. How about if it (IM inj. Paliperidone Palmitate (Invega Sustenna)) has been stored in a freezer for a few days? Does it lose potency or become unsafe?

So why would the Dr. put me on an Anti-pysotic med? ## These types of medications are commonly used to treat BiPolar Disorder, if you read the monograph, you will see it is even approved to treat it.
