I was on Invega for 5 months, in those 5 months I gained 35 pounds which has effected the quality of life. I was thinking how much I rather be dead, would cry everyday, it invaded my thoughts all day. I really want to try ability again but my doctor said it didn't work after trying it for a month. All other antipsychotic meds cause weight gain so I don't know what else to switch it to, and I was advised not to discontinue taking medication. What have any of you done to help with weight gain on Invega?
