Please share experiences with Geodon

Our daughter is trying Geodon (Ziprasidone) to help her FMS. Chlorpromazine had helped a little before. The doctor said this was in the same catagory and has fewer side effects. Is it used for treating schizophrenia. So far (one week), she is doing well. She is getting more energy, thinking more clearly, and hurting less.

Have any of you tried this? What was the experience? Did you find it worked at all and if it did, did it eventually quit working?

Re: Please share experiences with Geodon

She has been on this medication for two weeks on and it seems to be another medication that is not going to help. Her some smyptoms seem to be getting out of control. She is more depressed and anxious. She has tremors at twlight. She has a higher degree of light sensitivity and water sensitivity. She has spells of almost blacking out. The conclusion is the medication is either causing the increase in symptoms or this doing nothing at all. Whatever the case, she is no longer taking Geodon.
