After years of bouncing from drug to drug to drug to stabilize my bipolar and anxiety disorders, my new psych has put me in Geodon. I had not heard of this drug before and was wondering what kind of luck people have had with it.
Hi, Suzi! I took Geodon for years and it worked very well for me at the time. Because of an unrelated medical situation I had to stop it, but I'd highly recommend it .
PS, I had no side effects either!
Just out of curiousity, have you ever taken lithium? Since there are so few drugs I can take it's my stand up drug now and I love it.
Best wishes and I hope the Geodon helps, Wildcat
I was on Geodon a couple of years I liked it because I didn't gain weight on it but, developed other side effects so my Dr. won't ever consider that again. I have tried other meds since then and gained 30 lbs. and medical problems I wish I could go back on Geodon good luck on it.
Hello SuziCue, I have been on geodon for about 5 years. Before they put me on it, I had never heard of it either. I've taken as high as 160 mg, and as low as 20 mg. It was almost an overnight change. The morning after taking it for the first time, things seem to have changed. My mind did not race as bad, my mood was better. When I was on 160 mg, I did gain a little weight. Other than that, the only other side effect is drowsiness at higher doses.
