I'm taking it and it is working great for me. I have nothing to base that on however, because it is my first drug treatment since I was just diagnosed a few months ago.

It is supposed to be refined Rispradril (sp?)

Anyhow, I am having very few side effects.

Hi, White and Hcbert, glad to have you here with us in the group, I don't know anything about the Invega, how does it seem to be working for you? I think that you are right about the refined bit, HC, I was just reading something in another post about it being a older drug that they had redone.. will see if I can find that post again for you. As long as it is working for you, I would not worry about it too much, I was just diagnosed in August of this year, and have been put on the Lamictal, and it is working wonders for me.

Have you seen the price tag on this drug? OUCH!!! Hover your mouse over the word Invega. Smile

Yep, because I'm on it

It has less side effects than other anti-psycotics, due to a fancy release mechanism. It is a redone version of another,older drug (just wiki it).

However, it makes me really drowsy and apathetic, so I'm trying to get off it.
