This medication is very simular to Seroquel. Geodon I find can cause Anxity So did seroquel.I think it's because your bobdy gets used to the drug and takeing it.

Comment:
Ok, so I started taking this medication when I was barely diagnosed with bipolar NOS. The first few days I was sleeping non stop. When I started getting used to the effects it wouldnt put me to sleep so much. But then I could not get up in the morning to go to school, or function.
