Were you looking for information about Invega? Envega is a common misspelling of Invega.
Invega® (paliperidone) is a medication that can be prescribed for the treatment of schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder. By blocking the effects of certain elevated chemicals in the brain (such as dopamine and serotonin), the medicine can improve symptoms of schizophrenia and help prevent them from returning. The tablets, which are specially designed to slowly release the drug over time, are generally taken once a day.
Most people tolerate Invega well, but side effects are possible. Common side effects can include a rapid heart rate, drowsiness, and internal feelings of restlessness or jitteriness. A few of the conditions you should let your healthcare provider know about before you take this product include diabetes, seizures, and a narrowing of the gastrointestinal tract (such as a stricture).
