FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: PALIPERIDONE

User Comments:


For Bipolar Disorder: “The drug eliminated my psychotic symptoms which is good. The problem is taking the drug when those symptoms subside. I had rapid weight gain in only three doses of 156mg and gained over 40 lbs! I stopped taking it because of this. It is extremely frustrating as I haven’t lost any weight yet and have been off of it for a few months. BEWARE of this drug if you need it monitor your weight because I gained it overnight. I’m angry that my doctor didn’t warn me of this happening or monitored my weight. He doesn’t care he just wanted money. Don’t 100% trust your doctor or take medication all the time unless absolutely necessary.”

For Bipolar Disorder: “Works like Risperdal with fewer side effects. Eliminates delusions and mania. In conjunction with Lithium and Klonopin I am fairly stable.”

Invega Sustenna (paliperidone) for Schizophrenia: “Warning: this shot will destroy your life. I only had 1 shot, the 234 mg. I dropped out of school, became depressed. It’s been 3 years and I still suffer from absence of emotion. It doesn’t sound like much but trust me, life becomes empty without emotions. In some cultures, hallucinations are a sign from beyond. People that can hear or see things will often become shamans, medicine men, or healers. I highly reccommend meditation, and/or seeing someone that is an energy healer.”

Invega Trinza (paliperidone) for Schizophrenia: “This drug is the worst thing that has happened to me. At first I was over medicated this drug caused my tongue to tic the upper part of my mouth. I would have all sorts of hallucinations and delusions which have gradually gone away as the medicine has been reduced to the recommended dose. Not only to mention I was only experiencing delusions prior to medication. They have gone away now but it seems as though my thoughts echo mimic align with sounds I hear. Also, it feels as though there are bugs under my skin due to micro muscle spasm. Worst part about this drug is that it causes you to zone into things like stare at things or become immobile in your line of vision. Which this only happens occasionally it really is difficult to drive or hold down a job. I have heightened energy level with adding Abilify. As this Invega Trinza causes couch lock not no energy, no motivation, and no drive. At least on this medication I don’t experience sexual dysfunction.”

Invega Sustenna (paliperidone) for Schizoaffective Disorder: “I have been on 156mg injections for the past year. Yes, there is weight gain, and its from over-eating because the drug makes you very hungry even shortly after eating. That was the only bad for me. Otherwise it gives me a calm reflective mind, and no symptoms from my illness. I am hoping to get my appetite under control through discipline. If you exercise and eat intelligently I am sure there would be no weight gain, but do be warned: you will be much more hungry than usual. Overall its the best anti-psychotic I’ve tried though, and that includes Risperdal, Abilify and Haliperidol (the worst one by far.) Compared to Risperdal, it is just as effective but with fewer side effects. I feel like less of a zombie.”
