Anyone familiar with this once a month shot? Pros/Cons please.
I don't know of anyone using Invega Sustenna... but the link below has two reviews which are quite positive.
Some pros for me are that I was having a lot of suicidal thoughts and feelings before I went on Invega. Since I've been receiving the shot the thoughts have dissipated and are pretty much gone. Some cons are I feel more sluggish and less like doing stuff. I have less energy to do anything fun or serious. My attention span gets lost after short periods of time for most things. I get headaches and have significant weight gain. I have problems with over eating and eating too much even though I don't feel hungry I crave the feeling of food. I have significant dry mouth and am constantly drinking water. Caffeine makes the dry mouth worse but helps with the energy deficiency so its give or take ok.
