Hi,

Paliperidone extended-release injections (Invega Hafyera, Invega Sustenna, Invega Trinza) are used to treat schizophrenia (a mental illness that causes disturbed or unusual thinking, loss of interest in life, and strong or inappropriate emotions).

I would recommend that if you feel that he is not getting better than he is re-evaluated by his treating mental health professional to get the best possible treatment for his mental health condition,

Does this make sense?

Warm regards
