Geodon side effects

I'm taking 80 mg. twice a day at night, and have noticed slightly blurred vision. I'm not even sure if it is working yet; I've been on it since August 10. Does anyone have anything favorable to report about Geodon?

Re: Geodon side effects

Geodon gave me Akathesia which was the worst side effect (Parkinsons like symptoms) I've ever experienced, I wanted to die. So I stopped taking it after two days.

Re: Geodon side effects

ShoelessTroy, thank you for your comment. I haven't had the shaking symptoms you mentioned but keep reading about that side effect.

I seem to remember Geodon giving me sort of a "tunnel vision" type side effect...it was kinda scary. I think this was also one of the meds that made me have weird muscle spasms in my face.

Re: Geodon side effects

I just started geodon a month ago and notice what you are talking about. My eyes even hurt. I am also on lamictal and not sure which is doing what to me. Do you get the surges in your head? They are like zaps of electricity? I hate it all.
