Geodon (ziprasidone) is an antipsychotic medication. It works by changing the effects of chemicals in the brain. Geodon is used to treat schizophrenia and the manic symptoms of bipolar disorder (manic depression) in adults and children who are at least 10 years old.

Geodon may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Geodon is not for use in psychotic conditions related to dementia. Geodon may cause heart failure, sudden death, or pneumonia in older adults with dementia-related conditions.

Do not use Geodon if you have a personal or family history of “Long QT syndrome,” if you have recently had a heart attack, or if you have uncontrolled heart failure.

Stop taking Geodon and call your doctor right away if you feel dizzy or light-headed, have a fast or pounding heartbeat, or if you faint. This could be signs of a serious heart rhythm problem.

There are many other medicines that can cause serious or life-threatening medical problems if you take them together with Geodon. Tell your doctor about all the prescription and over-the-counter medications you use. This includes vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start using a new medication without telling your doctor. Keep a list with you of all the medicines you use and show this list to any doctor or other healthcare provider who treats you.
