... extreme drowsiness usually or will this go away in time? I just added Geodon this week and I feel sleepy all day. I take 100mg of Lamotrigine and 40mg of Geodon. My doctor wanted me to try 80mg of Geodon however I am already too sleepy. I have schizoaffective bipolar disorder. I have a bipolar disorder since 2001 but was diagnosed this year with the schizoaffective diagnosis. Is this condition a condition that will last the rest of my life or will my mind cure itself with meds over time? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks
it can for sure. Ativan it self has a side effect of drowsiness, antipsychotics (geodon) does also and i would assume an antiepileptic like lamotrigine would also. as for it going way i dont know about that, i would assume so with the ativan since your body begins to tolerate that dosage but the rest im not sure.
also im really sorry about the disorder but bipolar with schizoaffective? so im curious about the phases you go through. is it delusional/hallucination/etc, depression, then manic (or normal)?
