I'm bipolar and Geodon was like a living death sentance for me. Multiple side effects. The scariest for me was the dreaming or should I say nightmares. Even in the day when I was just trying to think to myself, very strange thoughts popped in from nowhere. I stopped it when I could no longer distinquish those false thoughts from reality. Bad stuff.
