amari21 Invega Sustenna Recovery


Recommended Posts

Hey I have been treated with Invega Sustenna for the second time. Was wondering if anyone else has been given this drug and how long did it take for you recover? Also what did you do to speed up recovery? I feel like the longer this stays in my system the more brain dead I feel and become.

Hi Amari, 


I'm not familiar with that drug, but chances are someone here will know about it. 


Are you taking anything else, or have you taken other psych drugs before?

2020: After 18+ years (entire adult life) on Paxil, a dangerous doctor-led "taper" in 2015, and four years tapering off the last 1 mg thanks to SA and the Brassmonkey slide, 

I AM COMPLETELY FREE OF PAXIL! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Forever.


2021: Began conservative, proper, CNS-respecting taper of Zoloft, led by the only expert on me -- me. Making own liquid. 5-10% plus holds.

2022: Holding on Zoloft for now. Current dose 47 mg. Hanging in, hanging on. Severe protracted PAWS, windows and waves. While I may not be doing "a lot" by outside standards, things are graaaaadually getting better

Welcome, amari.


You've had an injection, correct? Please see Tips for tapering off Invega (paliperidone)
