Feeling energized on Geodon

Postby Evahunny3030 » Sat Aug 11, 2018 10:35 pm

Has anyone else had this side effect? I take 40 mg with food twice a day. I wake up feeling energized but by the time I get to work I feel like I did two lines of coke and I uncomfortably energetic. It almost feels like a manic episode but without any other symptoms. By 2pm I am usually fine and I sleep normally by 11pm and sleep through the night a full 8 hours. I work out to burn off the energy but it doesn't seem to help. Aside from this I really like Geodon and want to stay on it. My psych wants me to keep on it for another month to see if this goes away as I have only been on it 2 weeks. Any advice appreciated

Might talk to your doc about a mood stabilizer like Lithium or Lamictal as well. Anti-psychotics don't help that well with mood in my experience but are good at keeping your thoughts fairly normal.
Be kind to everyone you come across because you never know who’s suffering inside.
