was on Abilify, but started having too many medical side effects. It was very disappoiting because the Abilify really, really helped.
I was the same way with Abilify. I took Geodon and it started to help, but it made my tongue swell (which was not that bad). But, the medicine my dr. gave to combat the swelling knocked me out. I couldn't function.
But, a lot of people take it and have no problem. Good luck. Hang in there.
I have been taking Geodon for a month for depression and severe mood swings. I have had some side effects- the hardest being a LOT of anxiety (to the point I can not sit, stand still nor sleep) but the depression has been gone and a majority of the mood swings.
As I am seeing, everyone is different with side effects. Some are gaining weight where I am loosing it pretty quickly. (i am also working out now that the depression is subdued.) But all in all, Geodon is helping.
