Invega

Invega is the primary active metabolite of the older antipsychotic risperidone. While its specific mechanism of action is unknown, it is believed that invega and risperidone act via similar if not the same pathways. It has been proposed that the drug’s therapeutic activity in schizophrenia is mediated through a combination of central dopamine Type 2 (D2) and serotonin Type 2 (5HT2A) receptor antagonism. Invega is also active as an antagonist at alpha 1 and alpha 2 adrenergic receptors and H1 histaminergic receptors, which may explain some of the other effects of the drug. Invega was approved by the FDA for treatment of schizophrenia on December 20, 2006.

Invega is an atypical antipsychotic developed by Janssen Pharmaceutica. Chemically, invega is primary active metabolite of the older antipsychotic risperidone (invega is 9-hydroxyrisperidone). While its specific mechanism of action is unknown, it is believed invega and risperidone act via similar, if not the same, pathways.

The possibility of obtundation, seizures, or dystonic reaction of the head and neck following overdose may create a risk of aspiration with induced emesis.
