Does anyone have any experience with this drug?
I hope you receive this asap. Your son is showing extraxpyramidal symptoms (EPS). He is having a reaction to the geodon. What you need to do is keep calm and keep him calm, because the situation is very frightening to experience for all involved. Assure him that he will be okay and call his doctor or the emergency room. Tell them what is happening and tell them he is taking geodon. They will probably have you bring him in and give him either benadryl or cogentin in an injectible form. Once this hits his system, he will be fine. You can look up the following on the Internet as these are all similar type reactions and, unfortunately are very common: tardive dyskinesia, dystonia, and extrapyramidal symptoms. Hope this helps and I hope your son will be feeling great in no time.
