We revise the Lewis-Riesenfeld invariant method for solving the quantum time-dependent harmonic oscillator in light of the Quantum Arnold Transformation previously introduced and its recent generalization to the Quantum Arnold-Ermakov-Pinney Transformation. We prove that both methods are equivalent and show the advantages of the Quantum Arnold-Ermakov-Pinney transformation over the Lewis-Riesenfeld invariant method. We show that, in the quantum time-dependent and damped harmonic oscillator, the invariant proposed by Dodonov & Man'ko is more suitable and provide some examples to illustrate it, focusing on the damped case.
