Cuttlefish Posted August 13, 2009 Share Posted August 13, 2009 So I'm thinking about asking my pdoc to try Geodon next visit. I've been on all of the atypicals with the exception of Geodon and Clozapine. I've read that Geodon has some antidepressant effects besides its antipsychotic properties. I'm a bit skeptical of this, but if it's true, I figure that pairing it with a good tricyclic antidepressant will be great for my depression besides nipping my possible psychosis/schizophrenia in the bud. I've also read that it is considered weight-neutral. I've only had real issues with abilify, which made me extremely restless, and zyprexa, which made me a blimp. I also overdosed on Seroquel before, since I was on a high dose of it at the time and I had a lot of it on hand. Besides these issues, I haven't really had major issues with the atypicals. Much of it has been experimentation to see what kinds of options I have availiable to me, and my pdoc is open to suggestions. So I'm guessing I'm asking for feedback and experiences related to Geodon. The good, the bad, and the ugly from people who have actually taken it. Thank you!
