So far so good, but I am leary of all the severe possibly permanent side effects. I am happy, lots of energy- feel like a new person.

Comment:
After first two days I felt much better for part of the day--was even feeling happy. Then I began feeling extremely anxious. At night I felt clobbered, so extremely exhausted. Then, after about a week, when I was up to 100 mg/day, I had a distemic reaction which landed me in the emergency room. After a few days off Geodon, my Dr. reintroduced it with a medication to counter the distemic reaction. ... Show Full Comment
