I've had trouble falling asleep all my life. I take between 1 to 3 hours at least to fall asleep if I even sleep. I've been treated for bipolar for over 30 years. I now take geodon. Taken for six weeks now. No noticeable effect whatsoever. I might as well be taking candy. Take 120mgs with food. The long nights laying awake do cause depressed mood- but who wouldn't be???
