From Seroquel to Invega

Posted by Phidippus on September 14, 2010, at 11:41:14

I like Invega. It makes me feel calm and just a little bit warm. But it has an evil side and has cranked me up, leaving me restless and posessed of nasty anxiety attacks. This morning I took 2 mg of Ativan and my anxiety was zapped, but I still felt really restless. My brain would not stop. I took 10 mg of propanalol to thwart akathisia and it seems to have worked, but my brain shows no sign of shutting up. I have a very bad headache too and took 10 mg of Oxycodone for that. What the f*ck do I need to tranquilize me into oblivion? I have ADHD, BPD, OCD, CDH and Epilepsy. I take Lithium, Anafranil, Invega, Keppra, GAbitril, Ativan and an opiate every now and then. Why can't I sleep?

I'm sorry if you have epilepsy might klonopin help both that and the anxiety? Just thinking? Trileptal or tegretol? Phillipa

>leaving me restless

I think you would do better with a lower dose.

I get depressed and agitated on Klonopin. I use Ativan as my rescue.

Trileptal or tegretol?

I had weirdness on Trileptal...Never been on Tegretol.

I actually upped the dose and my mood smoothed out. I'm now just combating the restlessness Invega is confering on me.

I think you should go back on the Seroquel. Maybe take both invega and seroquel at lower doses?
