I've been on geodon 40mg about 6wks and have horrible muscle aches and pains. Flu like symptoms. Does this ever go away? And my sinuses are driving me nuts. Help
Common (1% to 10%): Musculoskeletal stiffness, myalgia
Uncommon (0.1% to 1%): Joint stiffness, muscle cramps, extremity pain, tenosynovitis
Rare (less than 0.1%): Arthropathy, musculoskeletal discomfort, trismus, myopathy
I suggest you inform your dr., 6 weeks of pain is too long in my opinion, perhaps you need a dose adjustments or a change of antipsychotic.
Hello. I've been taking geodon for about 5 years, and it was not until this past year that I started getting horrible muscle spasms in my chest, I have had my potassium levels checked along with many other things, and everything came back normal, and the spasms seem to intensify. I'm not saying it's because of the geodon, but I'm not ruling out geodon either, and my pharmacist said geodon could cause it, but unlikely.
yES I HAVE BEEN ON gEDON FOR 7.5 YEARS IT HAS BEEN TWEAKED THE DOSAGE BUT I CAN ONLY TAKE THE NAME BRAND BY PZEIZER . I CAN NOT TAKE THE GENERIC I AM ALLERGIC TO IT. iT I TAKE 80MG TWICE A DAY OR EVERY 12 HOURS AND AFTER I TAKE IT WITH CRckers or a snack it takes 2 hours for it to make me tired and then it makes me sleep for two hours exactly TWO HOURS AFTER FOR SLEEP AND TWO HOURS OF SLEEP YOULL SLEEP.
