Anybody know if invega can cause tics or does invega help tics? I'd like to know as I'm taking Zoloft 100mg + Invega 6mg + Artane 2mg + Lunesta 3mg, and I'm wanting to lower and get off of Artane pretty soon.

As jook said, Invega, like any AP, can cause EPS (which may include involuntary movements) -- however, if you're referring to tics like what's seen with Tourette's, then Invega would probably HELP -- as APs are a standard treatment for Tourette's.

It's terrible, Bob, to think that all I've suffered, and all the suffering I've caused, might have arisen from the lack of a little salt in my brain.

Well even the doctors are unsure if it's tourette's tics or eps movements.

Can you suppress them, even temporarily?

And does one of these movements come out of the blue, or do you "feel it coming," so to speak?

Well, I've been able to deduce them to EPS movements because when I go off of an AP, the side effect slowly decreases and/or deminishes so my assumption at this point is that it's EPS. Luckally there are meds there to help counteract this.
