as far as I know, 4.5% in comparison to 2.6 % on placebo died, but not sure if those were only elderly patients or not.

when I asked about weight gain, lots of medicines said taht weight gain is 10 %, unfortunately I have always been in those 10%.

So now the risk is 5%, according to my experience the risk to die would be 50/50 then, that is in fact a high risk and I would prefer 5% 5/100, but I have a hard time believing in the statistics given my experiences.

I would in any case check all the safety measures before: take risperdal max. dosage and invega max. dosage (not together, one after the other or just the one that you yet didn't have) and see how you react to this before you take invega sustenna.

has anyone made bad experiences with invega (didn't work for long) and then good ones with invega sustenna (it worked, clearer head, no weight gain?)?
