Invega 

Indication

Invega (Paliperidone) belongs to the class of medications called antipsychotics. It is used to control the symptoms of Schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders. Invega (Paliperidone) works by readjusting the balance of chemicals in the brain that are involved in schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia can cause symptoms such as hallucinations (e.g., hearing, seeing, or sensing things that are not there), delusions, unusual suspiciousness, and emotional withdrawal. People with this condition may also feel depressed, anxious, or tense.

Invega (Paliperidone) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Invega (Paliperidone) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Invega (Paliperidone) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Invega (Paliperidone) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Invega (Paliperidone), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Invega (Paliperidone) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Invega (Paliperidone) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Invega (Paliperidone) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Invega 

Dosage

The recommended starting adult dose is 6 mg taken once daily, preferably in the morning, with or without food. For some people, a lower dose of 3 mg may be enough. The dose may be adjusted by 3 mg every 5 days as recommended by your doctor, according to response and severity of side effects. The maximum daily dose is 12 mg. Lower maximum daily doses are recommended for people with decreased kidney function.

The tablets must be swallowed whole with water or other liquids and must not be chewed, divided, or crushed. The tablet shell is not absorbed and you may notice it in your stool (this is normal).

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Invega (Paliperidone) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed dose. If you miss 2 or more doses, contact your doctor. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Invega (Paliperidone) at room temperature, protect it from moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or

Invega 

Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Invega (Paliperidone).

Abnormal heart rhythms: Invega (Paliperidone) can cause abnormal heart rhythms. Certain medications (e.g., quinidine, procainamide, Amiodarone, Sotalol, Chlorpromazine, thioridazine, moxifloxacin) can increase the risk of a type of abnormal heart rhythm called QT prolongation and should not be used in combination with Invega (Paliperidone). People who have a slow heart rate, low potassium or magnesium levels, or have congenital prolongation of the QT interval are more at risk for this type of abnormal heart rhythm and its complications. Talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of using Invega (Paliperidone).

Blood Clots: Rarely, Invega (Paliperidone) increases the chance of blood clot formation, causing reduction of blood flow to organs or the extremities.

If you have a history of clotting, you may be at increased risk of experiencing blood clot-related problems such as Heart Attack, stroke, or clots in the deep veins of your leg. Discuss with your doctor how Invega (Paliperidone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Invega (Paliperidone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Blood counts: Invega (Paliperidone) can decrease the number of neutrophils (a type of white blood cell that helps fight infection), red blood cells (which carry oxygen), and platelets (which help your blood to clot). Your doctor will do blood tests to monitor this. If you notice any signs of infection (e.g., fever, chills, or sore throat) or unusual bleeding or bruising, contact your doctor immediately.

Body temperature: Invega (Paliperidone), like other antipsychotic medications, can disrupt the body's ability to control body temperature. People who exercise vigorously, who are exposed to extreme heat, are dehydrated, or are taking anticholinergic medications (e.g., Benztropine, Oxybutynin) are more at risk. Contact your doctor as soon as possible if you feel very hot and are unable to cool down while taking Invega (Paliperidone).

Cataract surgery: During eye surgery for Cataracts, people who take or have taken Invega (Paliperidone) are at risk for developing a condition called Intraoperative Floppy Iris Syndrome (IFIS). This condition can lead to eye damage. If you are planning to have an operation on your eye, inform your doctor if you are taking or have taken Invega (Paliperidone).

Cholesterol: Invega (Paliperidone) can cause increased blood cholesterol levels. If you are at risk of developing High Cholesterol or you have high cholesterol levels before starting Invega (Paliperidone), discuss with your doctor how Invega (Paliperidone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Invega (Paliperidone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Diabetes and blood sugar: Invega (Paliperidone) may cause an increase in blood sugar levels and glucose tolerance may change. People with diabetes may find it necessary to monitor their blood sugar more frequently while using Invega (Paliperidone).

If you have diabetes or are at risk for developing diabetes, discuss with your doctor how Invega (Paliperidone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Invega (Paliperidone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you experience weakness, increased thirst, increased urination, and increased appetite while taking Invega (Paliperidone), contact your doctor.

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Invega (Paliperidone) may affect the mental or physical abilities needed to drive or operate machinery. Avoid driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous tasks until you have determined how Invega (Paliperidone) affects you.

Gastrointestinal problems: Invega (Paliperidone) should not be taken by people with conditions associated with narrowing of the gastrointestinal tract (e.g., esophagus disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, "short gut" syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis), or by people who have difficulty swallowing.

Heart conditions: If you have a heart condition, such as Angina, heart failure, irregular heartbeat, or you have had a heart attack, discuss with your doctor how Invega (Paliperidone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Invega (Paliperidone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Hypersensitivity syndrome: A severe allergic reaction called hypersensitivity syndrome has occurred for some people taking medications similar to Invega (Paliperidone). Stop taking the medication and get immediate medical attention if you have symptoms of a severe allergic reaction, including fever, severe rash, swollen glands, yellowing of the skin or eyes, or flu-like symptoms with skin rash or blistering.

Lactose intolerance: Certain strengths (3 mg tablets) of Invega (Paliperidone) tablets are prepared with lactose. If you have hereditary lactose or galactose intolerance problems you should not take this strength of the medication.

Kidney function: Kidney Disease or reduced kidney function may cause Invega (Paliperidone) to build up in the body, causing side effects. If you have reduced kidney function or kidney disease, discuss with your doctor how Invega (Paliperidone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Invega (Paliperidone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.
Low Blood Pressure: Invega (Paliperidone) may cause low blood pressure when rising from a sitting or lying down position. If you feel dizzy, lightheaded, or feel your pulse racing, call your doctor. While you are taking Invega (Paliperidone), get up slowly after you have been sitting or lying down for a prolonged period.

Neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS): Invega (Paliperidone), like other antipsychotic medications, can cause a potentially fatal syndrome known as NMS. If you experience the symptoms of NMS, such as high fever, muscle stiffness, confusion or loss of consciousness, sweating, racing or irregular heartbeat, and fainting, get immediate medical attention.

Parkinson's Disease: People with Parkinson's disease or Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) may be at an increased risk of NMS (see warning about NMS), as well as other side effects associated with Invega (Paliperidone). Talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of using Invega (Paliperidone).

Risperidone: People who are taking risperidone should not take Invega (Paliperidone) at the same time. These medications are related, and taking them together may cause an increased risk of side effects.

Seizures: Invega (Paliperidone) may increase the risk of seizures, especially in people who have had seizures in the past. People who are at risk of seizures who take Invega (Paliperidone) should be closely monitored by their doctor. If you have had seizures, discuss with your doctor how Invega (Paliperidone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Invega (Paliperidone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Suicidal or agitated behaviour: People taking Invega (Paliperidone) may feel agitated (restless, anxious, aggressive, emotional, and feeling not like themselves), or they may want to hurt themselves or others. These symptoms may occur within several weeks after starting Invega (Paliperidone). If you experience these side effects or notice them in a family member who is taking Invega (Paliperidone), contact your doctor immediately. You should be closely monitored by your doctor for emotional and behaviour changes while taking Invega (Paliperidone).

Tardive dyskinesia (TD): TD, a syndrome consisting of potentially irreversible, involuntary, repetitive movements of the face and tongue muscles, may develop in people who take certain antipsychotic medications including Invega (Paliperidone). Although TD appears most commonly in seniors, especially women, it is impossible to predict who will develop TD. The risk of developing TD increases with higher doses and long-term treatment. If you experience muscle twitching or abnormal movements of the face or tongue, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Pregnancy: Invega (Paliperidone) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. Using Invega (Paliperidone) during the last three months of pregnancy can harm the developing baby and cause withdrawal symptoms after birth. If you become pregnant while taking Invega (Paliperidone), contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: Invega (Paliperidone) passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Invega (Paliperidone), it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of using Invega (Paliperidone) have not been established for children under 18 years of age. Clinical studies using Invega (Paliperidone) to treat adolescents with schizophrenia have shown an increased likelihood of movement disorders occurring in this group.

Seniors: Medications similar to Invega (Paliperidone) can increase the risk of death as a result of a stroke,  mini-stroke, and severe infection, when used to treat seniors with dementia. Invega (Paliperidone) should not be used to treat seniors with dementia.
