I was misdiagnosed with schizophrenia last year and was forced to take Invega Sustenna injection at 100mg a month for 10 months too. It gave me severe anhedonia and many other side effects. I have lost my ability to feel pleasure, joy, comfort, or excitement. I have no motivation or willpower to do anything and have not been able to function and lost my job since. I constantly feel restless, agitated, and uneasy. 


My last shot was on Auguest 29th and it has been 3 months so far and I haven't felt any improvement at all. I fear this may be permanent from what I have been reading so far online.


Do you have any other side effects? How long must you be on it for?

Both of you need to talk to your pdoc. You need a professional to discuss this with you. None of us here are qualified to do more than lend support and an ear to listen. You need someone that can see you and have a dialog with you.
