I've been taking the Xeplion (Paliperidone) injection for about a year now. This drug blocks the serotonin and dopamine receptors in the brain. I read that this drug stays in the body for 126 days. If I stop taking this drug, will the serotonin and dopamine receptors be unblocked after 126 days?

Does IM injection Paliperidone Palmitate (Invega Sustenna) lose potency or become unsafe if it has been stored in far above room temperature for a few weeks? ## Hello, Ally! How are you? Yes, it would most likely be best to dispose of it. Liquid medications tend to degrade very fast, when not stored properly. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks for your reply, Verwon.
