Schizophrenia Symptoms

Patrick is on a schizophrenia treatment journey with INVEGA TRINZA®, given by injection from a healthcare professional. He began treatment after being adequately treated with INVEGA SUSTENNA® (paliperidone palmitate), the once-monthly version of the medication with the same active ingredient, for at least four months.

What are the symptoms?

There are many different types of symptoms of schizophrenia. Not everyone has the same ones. They fall into two categories:

Positive symptoms

Feelings or behaviors that are usually not present, such as:

  • Seeing, hearing, or sensing things that are not there (hallucinations)
  • Having unusual beliefs that seem strange to most people and are obviously false (delusions)
  • Disorganized speech and behavior
Negative symptoms

A lack of feelings or behaviors that are usually present, such as:

  • Being less able to show feelings
  • Losing an interest in or ability to do tasks or activities
  • Avoiding family and friends and wanting to be alone
* Please discuss your symptoms with your healthcare professional. He or she will review your symptoms and may consult the established guidelines, which are available in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, where applicable.
