Invega® (paliperidone) is a medicine that is licensed to treat schizophrenia in adults and adolescents (defined as individuals 12 to 17 years of age) and schizoaffective disorder in adults. The drug works by blocking or lessening the effects of certain elevated brain chemicals (such as serotonin and dopamine). In addition to controlling the symptoms of schizophrenia, Invega has also been shown to help prevent symptoms from returning.
The medication, which is available by prescription, comes in tablet form and is generally taken once a day. A long-acting injectable form (Invega Sustenna™) is also available. Among the factors that can affect the dose of Invega that your healthcare provider recommends are other medical conditions you may have and other medications you may be currently taking. Side effects of Invega can include a rapid heart rate, drowsiness, and headaches.
