How INVEGA SUSTENNA® (paliperidone palmitate) Works

INVEGA SUSTENNA® is gradually released each day into your system for 4 weeks. You get a consistent amount of medicine when taken each month, after your two starting doses. That means you know your medicine is in your system to help give you symptom control—without you having to think about it daily.

Speaking up

If you sometimes miss doses of your current medicine, don’t be afraid to tell your Treatment Team about it. You’re not the only one who has trouble remembering to take pills every day.

If you want to explore the option of a medication you take once a month, ask your doctor about whether INVEGA SUSTENNA® is right for you. A long-acting medicine like INVEGA SUSTENNA®, given by your doctor, may help you stay on track with your medication.
