Love the Smell of Geodon
Posted over a year ago
does anyone else experience this? this is also about the only drug that will calm me down. do you like or dislike the drug?
Kellyr644 - I personally don't think i like it too much at all. I've only been on it a couple of weeks and it does help with my psychosis; but already i'm getting akathisia. just keep an eye out for symptoms like your body feeling restless (like you can't hold still for more than a few secs.), feeling like you have raw energy coursing thru your muscles (like your nervous system wants to jump out of your body and runaway without you), or any strange symptoms that reflect what i described. there's a medication called cogentin that can treat the symptoms of akathisia, but unless the geodon is really, really helping with your emotions/behavior, you may want to consider trying a different persrciption drug treatment. if you do change medications don't let them give u abilify it has the same side effect of akathisia only much worse. GOOD LUCK!
