Hi lost in seattle,
Welcome to HW--Invega, is an antipsychotic, so not uncommon to be used for bipolar. I don't know much about the drug. I hated Seroquel very much as well. It made me feel like a zombie...so sluggish, couldn't do anything. Talk to your doc/pdoc. Voice your concerns, ask him/her about the new med, and about Seroquel if you don't like it.
Sorry I don't have any answers really, but keep posting and let us know how you're doing
Hi Lost in Seattle,
I would like to welcome you to the HW family. I hope you find the support you need here.
I know the feeling, before I found what works for me I went through a lot of different meds. I too hated seroquel, but most of the anti-psychotic do leave you sluggish. I've been on 4 so far, and they all made me almost delireous.
As Mogli said, you should definetly talk to your pdoc about the problems you are having. Plus if Abilify and Lamictal didn't work for you, you should discuss it with your doc to try to find a better solution.
