I've recently been given the go ahead by my doctor to take 60mg. in the morning and my usual 160mg/night. Due to severe stress I'm going thru right now. I know 160mg. is the therapeutic dose, I was just wondering if anyone else has had to go higher like me? I'm bipolar 1 and also take clonopin, prozac and lamictal. I don't experience any of the major side effects from the drug anymore and feel comfortable taking it at this level.
Hello wyldemane. Don't really have an answer, most people as you said are on the 160mg. 80mg twice per day is the usual dose but given the current dose of Geodon, I'd not go any higher. Glad that you are doing well on the dose, and that the side effects are almost nil. Good health and wishes to you,pledge
Mr doctor started me on a high dose 160... i took it one time an never touched it again..im glad u are doing fine... all people are different an can handle meds better then others but if u do look at the big picture we are just ginnypigs for the physicians it really a hit or miss thing we are experiments lol..they do go by what u tell them so if u are doing fine then im happy an keep your chin up an out of the dirt u are not alone
