Comment:
Lamictal, Cymbalta and Geodon. Excellent combination. Thank Goodness I am off the Risperdal. That was making me gain weight immensely. The only side effect I had from Geodon is mild sleepiness and for some reason I have this taste in my mouth like I swallowed aspartame or something sweet like it. Other than that I lost 8 lbs and I am in control of the anger/mood swings. I highly recommend Geodo ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been on Geodon for five years along with Depakote for Bipolar 1. It really stabilizes me without the weight gain I experienced on Zyprexa. I have no side effects other than a little sleepiness either from the Geodon or the Depakote or both which is easily remedied by drinking a couple cups of coffee. This has been a wonder drug for me. I highly recommend giving it a chance.

Comment:
This medicine causes exteme drowsiness and did not help improve my moods or stable them out at all. This medicine caused me to break out in cystic acne, so I took myself off of it. I stick to Lamictal, Seroquel, and Elavil.

I had a severe dystonic alergic reaction which landed me in the emergency room. I lost control of my tongoue and I had a temporary case of lockjaw.

Comment:
I don't like the side effect of drowsiness. Even though I take it at night, I have a hard time waking up in the morning. I'm on a very low dosage and cannot increase because of the drowsiness.
