Sadgurl22 Coming off of Invega Sustenna/Withdrawals


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what withdrawals are like on invega sustenna? I'm experiencing what looks to be secondary negative symptoms from this med. I'm in a constant state of despair as well as distraction. I feel like my life is off track. I'm also unable to change my diet. I keep getting negative images in my head and vision as well as constantly thinking about the past. I feel like invega does this as it's a sign of cognitive function not working properly. I also can't stop walking and I keep talking to myself. I also feel like someone is always over me. I can't take naps. I only sleep at night and I always wake up with body aches and sweaty. I'm still on invega sustenna at 234mg. I've been on that dose for 2 years now. I first got on it in January of 2017. But got off it because it started making me lactate and feel totally different from how I used to be. They ended up putting me back on it tho. I've probably had about 24 injections in total. I hope to come off and never get on this med again. My mom keeps making them put me on it. I live with her at the moment. She's an evil person. Can't wait to move out! I wanna live with my bf but I dont see him that often I'm waiting to see if he will let me move in. I'm so miserable. I can't cry and if I do it's like I'm crying from my forehead and not my eyes. Any advice? Sorry for long post it's probably in the wrong topic.

Welcome, @Sadgurl22


You have gotten an injection, correct? Have you discussed these symptoms with your doctor?


This is a site for tapering off drugs, to go off an injection, you need to let it wear off.

If I were you, I would contact one of these organizations and ask how you can find an advocate to deal with your prescriber and home situation. https://mindfreedom.org/affiliates-sponsors/mfi-sponsor-affiliate-public-list/
