Hi, I am also new....my son is almost 13 years old and has been on invega (6mg) for about three months. I have to admit that I haven't seen too much of a change, but it is really hard to gage because there are so many other factors (such as puberty, etc...). In the past, he has also been on Risperdal and a few others. At times he is really good, but then he still has his episodes of 'losing it". Some things I am concerned about are his weight gain since he has been on Invega...he is very athletic and it is a bit puzzling....
Hi, we have reduced my sons Invega to 6 mg.He is taking only the Invega, he was taking Ritalin and Tegretol. We want to see how he is without any meds in his system. He is very immature for a 13 yr old, he functions more like a 4or 5 yr old for the most part, but then, we still have the horomones to deal with. He can go completly crazy, he does this at least 4, or 5 days a week. If its something he really wants, or thinks someone has done something to him, he will throw things, curse, hit you with anything he can get his hands on. Does your son go through this? Has anyone given you a diagnosis?
