I take geodon at nite to go to sleep. If I dnt take it, I dnt sleep. Ive been on it for 6 yrs now... and lately Im really withdrawn frm ppl, family and friends. I feel like no1 understands me and Im xtremely different, like my thought process is different frm others all the time... does that make me crazy? Or is this just another part of being bipolar? If ne1 understands plz respond bc I feel so alone sometimes... thanks

Hello Atwaters & welcome to the site. I am not a doctor nor an expert on this drug at all, but have to wonder if your bipolar is what is making you feel this way. Have you spoken with your psychiatrist about these feeings? My hubby is bipolar & has thee same feelings so I understand what you are going through. It could be you need a change of medication or addtion to the one you are taking to help you with these feelings. My suggestin would be to speak with your psychiatrist about this, & get his opinion...
