Iíve been on invega for a week so far. Today I am feeling anxious. My case manager says that anxiety is not caused by invega. Then why do I feel this way? Iíve been trying to read a book to distract myself which is sort of helping. Time is dragging along. I went to starbucks and had coffee and talked on the phone with the person I went to Chicago with but after two hours of talking he doesnít want to any more. Plus Iím still shaking and moving my tongue and lips around. Cogentin- along with invega- can cause tardiv dyskinesia. Or is that that true? The cogentin caused dry mouth and urinary retention. So I canít take cogentin. Invega can cause urinary retention too but so far so good. These side effects are driving me batty! Iím also hungry a lot! Trying to watch what I eat but I just ate an oatmeal cookie with some milk.

Oh. I don't know if invega can cause anxiety and chest pain. I only took one dose of it one night IP when I was really manic. It just numbed me a little bit. I didn't like it so I refused to take it again. Have you contacted your psychiatrist? I hate anxiety. It's a terrible feeling. I hope you feel better soon.

By the way, an oatmeal cookie sounds really good!

It was. Never ate lunch because my daughter and her boyfriend are taking me out for Mexican for dinner tonight! I want to be good and hungry for the feast! Anxiety hasnít plagued me today - yesterday was not fun! I never asked my case manager to relay the anxiety to my Pdoc. Iím unsure whether my psych nurse practitioner knows or not. I was feeling paranoid when trying to pay a bill online. I cancelled signing up and paid it via my debit card over the automated bill-paying thingie on their phoneís automated system. I then called and it said my balance is zero so I guess it will show up as deducted from my bank account in a day or two. At least I am avoiding anxiety-inducing activities! Iím doing ok on the invega pills so far. Chest pain is listed on this site that had umpteen side effects of invega that I was reading last night. It was more like reflux with heart burn and this morning is one of the days Iím supposed to take Prilosec so that seems to have fixed itself!

Feeling ok tonight. Went out to eat with my daughter and her boyfriend. Ate half of this large burrito and tried a fried Oreo. I didnít enjoy that. Too greasy.

Tomorrow is the big neighborhood garage sale in my momís neighborhood but I didnít realize it so I didnít get any cash. N3 has to work tomorrow morning so heís not coming.

Was reading about invega and it is specifically for schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder.

Invega can, in low numbers of cases, cause anxiety as a side effect. Is your case manager an M.D. or, more specifically, a psychiatrist? If you are having Generalized Anxiety Disorder or Anxiety due to one of the flavors of Depression and Panic Disorder. If this worsens, I would talk to someone else or get a second opinion. It is amazing to me really how many folks in healthcare seem not to understand medication therapy is supposed to help people and be corrective to such conditions. Not cause them, sorry for the anxiety.

My case manager isnít a doctor or nurse. Iím not sure what her credentials are. She is the go between of me and my psych nurse practitioner.

Iím at my primary doctor waiting to see how much weight Iíve gained on invega. Itís only been a couple weeks but I know my weight is higher.

I really was out of it. Feeling somewhat the same but feeling better for the most part. They said psych will want to see me here. I really am glad my doctor suggested that I come to the RR. I didnít feel comfortable driving home.

Iím home. Spent 3 days in the hospital. Still on invega 1.5. Off Wellbutrin and propranolol. We are going to California to take my dadís ashes out to sea. Last night I was up until 4 am hearing commanding voices. I took a 3 hour nap. Hoping I sleep okay. My case manager suggested that I go back to the ER but I chose to stay home. I see my Pdoc on Monday. We shall see if she wants to change my invega dose. I was on 3 mg at the hospital mainly because thatís all they had. Still having akathisia- tongue and lips. My pharmacy gave me enough meds to get me through one day before we get home. Iíll have to use some of the extra that I have from when I was in the hospital though theyíve taken me off Wellbutrin which I know is still in my blister packs. The pharmacist who does the blister packs isnít coming in for over a week. I hope I can remember what to take and what not to.

Having coffee at Starbucks. Feel a little over caffeinated. Slept in this morning. Now feeling sick. Feel shakey. Guess starbucks was a bad idea. I think Iíll throw away the rest of this drink.

Oh, goodness gracious, I have been hospitalized so often that they joke at the one I am usually in. It is affiliated with a large state university here. They were going to have a PO Box installed. I hope you are okay. If that person is not a doctor or an RN, they should not be telling you about medication side effects. I hope you feel better soon.

Please Be Well
