Reviews for Ziprasidone

“I'm going to start this off by saying that I was a COMPLETELY different person before I started taking this medication. I was prescribed this medication when I was 12 years old, suffering from anorexia, severe depression, and anxiety. This medicine gave me horrible side effects-- trouble with speech, socializing, and I became so dependent on this medicine every night that it took me 3 months of no sleep or food, having to miss school and be locked inside all day, to finally ween off it. I feel like this medicine definitely 'fried' my brain, before taking this medicine I had no issues with motivation, attention, socializing, and speech. After about 4 years off this medication, I can say I'm finally starting to feel a bit bit better.”

Geodon (ziprasidone): “I took this drug at night and immediately went to sleep. When it became time to wake up the next morning I felt like I was in another world. It literally felt like the world was upside down. I couldn't stand in the shower and ended up collapsing in bed with only a half wet bath robe. I couldn't move and could barely pull cover over top of my immobile body. I had severe pains in my body and especially my legs. I didn't even begin to feel coherent until 3pm. I never took another dose. However, the following night I had insomnia and didn't sleep a wink for two days. This is a strong medicine. ”
