GroovyGwen Posted December 13, 2007 Share Posted December 13, 2007 WHAT. THE. FUDGE. This time of year I historically need something to smooth me out and make me not completely destructive. So I started 20mg geodon as a replacement for Abilify, which doesn't allow me to sit down, like ever. I took 20mg tuesday evening, then 20mg Wednesday morning. Tuesday evening I fell asleep OK - but at about 3AM I was AWAKE. You know how you just wake up like someone was shaking you? Not the gradual, semi-awake state of "Hmm, I may be waking up", but "Hello! I'm awake!" Complete with racing thoughts and anxiety. I got up and did some crocheting and eventually fell back asleep for a few hours before work. So last night, I go to sleep OK around 11, then at 4AM - BAM! I'm AWAKE! (See description above) Same thing, I get up, do some crocheting (crotch-ette-ing is how I enjoy saying it) and try to fall back asleep around 5:30. Then at 6:27 - BAM! I'm awake. Crap. Not a huge deal because I had to get up at 6:35, but still. So my question (yes I have one in addition to my b*tching) is: If Geodon has a half life of 7 hours, what the HELL is it doing waking me up 20hrs after I take it??? Plus, this morning (like now) I am HAPPY! Wayyyyy HAPPY! Dancing, singing, "Gottaaah Daaaance!!" happy! I didn't take the Geodon this AM and have a call in to my doc but my WORD. What the hell is an AAP doing making me like this? (Yes, I know it's on the PI sheet as a possible side effect, but isn't that counter-productive?) At least I'm not depressed and rapid, but happy and rapid gets scary as we all know. Hmmm... I probably shouldn't be drinking all this coffee on top of it... The options are to go back on Abilify and just not sit down for awhile, go way back in the Med history closet to Seroquel which knocks my shit OUT even at 25mg... Or try something else all together. My doc sooooooo won't give me benzos or anything that has even a remote chance of abusing, he's on to me. I guess this is mostly a rant. Partly me getting some energy out by being witty (is it working?). I should go back to work now. But who the heck wants to type up a spreadsheet when you could be tap dancing?????? Not that I know how to tap dance, but it amuses me (and probably embarrasses me) to fake it. BEEEEEEEEEE HAPPPPPPYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
