namaste' is on a distinguished road
You know, its strange but I usually notice the side-effects of a medication right away and I thought to myself this morning that 'Invega' almost seems polor-opposite in many ways to 'Abilify'?

Do you get sleepy or distracted during the day or? As soon as I took my first 'Abilify' I felt a lift in energy and mood. 'INVEGA' seems different in so many ways? Maybe after two-weeks I'll have a better take on INVEGA (or maybe in a couple a days) and these side-effects will lessen?

Btw, what do you get from Risperdal .5mg? If you don't mind me asking? I'm sure it must be doing some good things for you since you don't want to dump it?

Thanks...

No I don't want to dump it. It helps me with my mood. I notice it helps me un-cycle without flattening my moods.
