How long did your recovery take? Did you have any sexual side effects? I'm new here. Had two loading doses (234mg, 156mg) about six weeks ago. I'm suffering from the usual. Brain fog, anhedonia, trouble socializing, can't feel alcohol, etc. I also can't maintain an erection or orgasm. I'm an artist and this has destroyed my ability to focus and develop creative thoughts. Feeling hopeless and devastated. If you can play jazz after all of this, that's a good sign. How bad were your symptoms?
Yeah, everything’s better than before, just a waiting game

Didn't expect any improvements after just 2 months but since last week's burst of energy my baseline has maintained..definitely feeling better than the last 2 months. Hoping for more improvement in the next months as I go back to work in April.

I have no idea why the starting dose for this poison is 400 mg injected in the span of a week. The official site of Janssen mentions this dosage...and the psychiatrists just blindly follow?? This is undoubtedly the reason why the side effects are so brutal at first. This is like starting on 13.33mg pills every day for a month..when most people who take the pill form are only taking 6mg/day.

It also makes no sense to me to get such a large starting dose back to back. If 234mg is already in your system, why would anyone need 156mg a week later? I tried Googling it and got no answers as to why they do that. And if it stays in your system for six+ months, I don't see any reason to get a monthly shot. The shot is very expensive and profit seems to be the motive here. The initial 234mg alone does more than enough damage.

Another side effect I've experienced is increased prolactin and seemingly decreased testosterone. My muscles are becoming weak and mass is decreasing, I'm gaining weight, and I've started forming painful breast tissue. I'm going to see a doctor soon to see what can be done about it. I'm looking to get on Wellbutrin and Cabergoline to counteract the Invega. Dopamine restrains prolactin production, so the more dopamine there is, the less prolactin is released. Invega has been proven to elevate prolactin levels and block dopamine receptors. Wellbutrin is a dopamine reuptake inhibitor and Cabergoline is a dopamine promoter designed to treat high prolactin. I'm hoping these will counteract the hormonal/sexual side effects.

I don’t like the idea of ‘is a chance for not recovering’ I mean y’all people can’t say to me that after 3 shots I will not recover..I’m 21 years old and I really hope I’ll make it! Blessings for all of you! I’m 1 month and 2 days off shots

Malakoff - that's your opinion about recovery, not fact. FROM WHAT IVE SEEN, most people recover. Please, again, focus on yourself. And stop invalidating others recovery - I deleted another post. Last warning.

Thé majority i have meet online offline they Never recovered are you recovered ?
The majority of people I've seen in these threads say they have recovered. I haven't recovered but I've only been off of Invega Sustenna for over 2 months so there's probably a lot left in my system still.

What symptoms are you having? I'm trying to play videogames at the moment and my reaction time is terrible. I used to be lightning fast. I can also barely exercise, I struggle to do 10 pushups. My muscles feel horribly weak.

My symptoms are lack of motivation, longer sleep, difficulty crying, blank mind, less enjoyment of activities, weight gain... That's all I can think of right now. I play video games too and my reaction time might be slower, not sure. I don't really do much exercise.
