with 1 dose
every 6 months
with INVEGA HAFYERATM,
the longest-acting injection available
INVEGA HAFYERATM (paliperidone palmitate) is the longest-acting injection available and the only schizophrenia medication that can help continuously control your symptoms with just 2 doses a year after being adequately treated with INVEGA SUSTENNA® (paliperidone palmitate) for at least 4 months or INVEGA TRINZA® (paliperidone palmitate) for one 3-month cycle. INVEGA HAFYERATM has the same medication for schizophrenia as INVEGA SUSTENNA® (paliperidone palmitate) and INVEGA TRINZA® (paliperidone palmitate) but is given once every 6 months.
In making the transition to INVEGA HAFYERATM, you can feel confident that the schizophrenia medication you need is being gradually released into your system every day for 6 months to help control symptoms. And long-acting injections (LAIs) like INVEGA HAFYERATM can help delay another episode so you can focus more on what’s important to you: your hobbies, your goals, and your future.
According to the 2020 American Psychiatric Association Practice Guideline, many patients may prefer the convenience of an infrequent injection rather than having to remember to take oral medication.
As with any medication, there are side effects to consider. But it’s important to be informed of all the treatment options available that could be a good fit for your life.
