    Unhappy This is about Geodon, PLEASE HELP ME.

    I know all to well that this might sound ridiculous although I must ask for help. I have taken Geodon for 3 nights, 40mg...
    The first two nights I was looooving it so much, during the day I was feeling great, and happy.... but last night it sent me into some unexplainable frenzy. I had the worst feeling of dread that I wanted to die just to escape the feeling my body was going through. I couldn't stand because the weight I felt weighing on my body. I couldn't sit because my body was just crawling so terribly. It was as if my senses were 10x (all but my nose, I couldnn't breath through it). It got so bad I decided to take 100mg of seroquel to where it would hopefully pass me out... and after about 2 and 1/2 hours it finally did. I just don't remember much from last night.

    I quit tonight and today I had the worst panic attack I have ever had.
    I am both hot and cold, shaky oh so shaky(I'm calmer at the moment). Grinding my teeth, nausious, my head feels like it's gonna' explode.
    I mean, I've read the withdrawal symptoms and they all match up with me.

    Is it possible to have withdrawal symptoms after just THREE F'IN DAYS? I mean, I've just been a mess... and I went through another fit just about an hour ago.

    Sorry for writing so much, I just need some info.
    The Pharmasist said it's out of my system.... that I should be fine.

    I don't feel fine.

    Re: This is about Geodon, PLEASE HELP ME.

    Call your doctor. It's so far an unacknowledged side effect, but my pdoc was able to get the company to cough up 75ish reports of geodon inducing mania and hallucinations, which it did in my case.

    I think it's probably a fine drug in general, but not for everyone, and the effects you're having are very disturbing.

    I feel for what you're going through. I've also been through that stuff though not specifically with Geodon. Your symptoms should gradually subside as the drug effect begins to taper. At times like this, you know what you're experiencing so any doctor or pharmacist who tells you otherwise, just recognize them for the idiots they are. I hope you're feeling better soon. Sometimes the medication effects are worse than the illness.

    I tried Geodon at low dose (20 or 40 mg) and after about 3 or 4 days I became so depressed. I was shocked, I thought I would be happy and perky.

    Geodon just didn't work for me. I had the worst dread and depression.

    Hope you are feeling better.
