Geodon review by 39 year old female patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   Mild Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   bi-polar disorder
Dosage & duration:   80 mg taken 2x/daily for the period of 3 yrs.
Other conditions:   OCD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Panic/Anxiety attacks
Other drugs taken:   hydrocodone, esgic plus tabs
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   The benefits are numerous. With the Geodon I haven't suffered from a bout of depression in app. 2 1/2 yrs.. Before the Geodon I suffered from depression for months at a time. I haven't been or felt suicidal at all since beginning the drug. With Geodon I am on an even keel. By that I mean that I do not suffer from the peaks and valleys of typical bi-polar disorder. I no longer have manic episodes for days and then sink into a dark depression. It has made most of my bi-polar traits go away.
Side effects:   The side effects are: dry mouth, possible headache,
Comments:   The treatment for me is to take 2 80mg capsules of Geodon daily and follow up with a psychiatrist.
