I am extremely tired and sleep a lot and I just started this medication 2 days ago. When will that wear off?
the most common side effect is being sleepy, you may notice dry mouth, Avoid grapefruit juice, and starfruit, you are suppose to take this medication with food. I cannot find where it says when the sleepiness improves I would take a guess and say as your body adjusts to the medication then you will adjust, your body isn't use to this and it has to have some time, if you notice anything that is bothersome please let your doctor know now thats not what I am seeing its just if you notice something unusual for you and it is bothersome then you need to let the doctor know best wishes,
Unfortunately the "sleepy feeling" you are having will most likely not go away. You just have to deal with that part of taking this medicine. For me, I take it at night and hopefully it has warn off by the time i need to wake up as this can create problems in the morning. The benefits of taking this drug outweigh the side effects and that is why i take it. I hope you make some progress with this Geodon as i have.
