My husband and I want to start a family. He is a recovered schizophrenic and currently takes Invega Sustena injections monthly. Has there been any studies on if or how it affects the sperm or if it will affect the baby?
There is no such thing as a "recovered" schizophrenic. If he stops his medications, the symptoms will come back again. His schizophrenia is controlled by his medication. Schizophrenia also tends to run in the children of schizophrenics, it is thought to be genetic and tends to run in families, so be aware of this as your child grows up. It generally manifests in the teens or at puberty or during the young adult years. The medication itself is not harmful to his sperm as far as they know, it has not been reported.
