As I've mentioned, my son got his 2 Invega starter shots in the hospital, came home with some mild-ish delusions, then was very good until about a week before his 1st maintenance shot when the delusions started again.
A few of the Invega pills seem to help, then the shot kicked in, then the mild-ish delusions started again, and didn't go away with pills. It's gotten slowly & steadily worse until now he's talking about them all the time and in the past 2 days I think he's stopped sleeping.
I spoke to his case manager & she said she'd let the doctor know & that maybe they'd increase the dosage or maybe they'd give it to him more frequently, maybe 3 weeks instead of 4.
Has anyone here had someone get the shots every 3 weeks?
I've read that an increase in dosage doesn't mean you won't get the 4th week fade in effectiveness that a lot of people say they see, so maybe every 3 weeks would be good?
He's not due to get his shot until next Friday, and I'd say it must have cut out on him about 2 days ago if that's what this is. I've supplemented him with some pills to try to see him through until Tuesday and I'm hoping that will hold him together well enough so that he can make it until then.
