Common Questions and Answers about Geodon and adderall

geodon

I went to my dr and she gave me adderall and i have decided to stop taking the seroquel and only take the geodon with my morning and night lithium and lamictal, with xanax as needed. i think this will work better for me. thanks for the support, i feel like a freak because i have to take medication, but as my boyfriend says its like wearing glasses, its necessary and helps. with me luck!
I have been on meds off and on for it for years now. The last two months I have made a real effort to get back on the Geodon (bipolar med) and Lexapro (for depression) and I really can tell a big difference. I went through several combos of meds before finding one that 'clicked' with me. So I guess I would have to say I am in fact bi-polar. There are two different types from what I understand.
I am hoping that if I take my Adderall, and get *motivated* I can update my blog every day, or at least three to four times a week, before I see my Psychiatrist again. I really do feel as if we're moving in the right direction, finally; however, I know we're going to need a cocktail of medications for me. I think he is finally coming to the realization too.
The ER basically sent me home and told me to take more Benedryl and wait for the Geodon to leave my system. But they didn't give me anything for the physical side effects. I asked and they said they wouldn't give me anything. I asked if it had anything to do with the meds I was on and they were like "No. We just need what we have for more serious incidents." Does anyone know if there's something I can get at like CVS or something because I can hardly function at all.
I started taking it 5 years ago, and have asked for something that isn't weight gaining. I was put on geodon, but had a terrible reaction (my tongue swelled and I couldn't breathe or speak), zyprexa I gained weight too, so I stuck with the Seroquel and just have to work a little harder to get this weight off. My doc knows how I am about my weight, before I started Seroquel I had lost 80 lbs. now I have gained that plus. There just wasn't another option.
Well how did they affect you when you were on them? If they caused problematical side effects that could not be mitigated and you discontinued them with your psychiatrist's supervision I can't say they won't occur again. Why weren't you able to tolerate them?
I can tell you if they worked/did not work for me or how it interacted with Adderall just to name a FEW Effexor Zoloft Lamicital Ativan Concerta Geodon Ritilian will list more soon... tired right now.
Then, about 2 ½ years ago I had a near-psychotic meltdown, mostly about the devil and evil spirits, and was diagnosed with OCD and prescribed Anafranil and Zyprexa, which helped with the irrational thinking and obsessive thoughts a little. Between now and then, I have been diagnosed with OCD, Social anxiety disorder, GAD, major depressive disorder, ADHD, and most recently, aspergers/high functioning autism.

I have been going to a Physiologist for 3 years now and have tried almost every depression, bipolar or mood-stabilizing drug out there. We have now found that Adderall and Concerta seem to help the best and I have been on them for a few years now. I still feel like I need something else to help. Geodon was the best medication I had tried but the side affects out weighed the benefits. I have also been looked at for Lupus and have seen a sleep specialist and have not helped.
I NEVER had problems with those three before until I was taking Geodon. And worst of all, shortly after being put on Geodon, over the year, i have developed male breasts, and even the slightest touch to either of my nipples is so painful I can't take it. Even showering, if the water hits my nipples, it hurts...I don't know what is happening to me.
She was on Geodon 80 mg (gained 30lbs and no improvement) and zoloft 50mg... with all the other stuff she was on. That was from August until mid December. For "psychosis" which turned out to be rapid eye movement from Lithium when she was manic. She has been off the Geodon and the Zoloft for 2 months and is back stable.
He was put on a combination of meds. adderall and tennex to help the effects of the adderal and geodon. He was on these meds for 3-4 years before he told them he thinks they aren't working anymore. They just recently changed his meds due to the attitude and behavior problems, alot of the times he will tell them no its not the meds its me i'm having trouble behaving and i have a problem with respect.
I don't know what to do about it, it seems to be getting worse lately. I am on lamictal and adderall and topamax. It's not peaceful not being able to just close my eyes to rest. It's not always violent, I remember closing my eyes and seeing a little girl in a dress kneeling down looking at me and holding a flower. The violent ones and sexual are the hardest for me to deal with. Sometimes if I hear music then I might have an image of someone dancing to that type of music, it's interesting.
I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
It's also a medication that's given at night because it can really knock you out. My son is on depekote, geodon, rozerem, and adderall xr. He has Aspergers and add. But he only takes 250 of the depokote and the dr does reg blood work on him. He's 10, Hope this helps! Good luck!
She was prescribed Topmax and some new to us called Geodon? She said she felt the best on this then anything else she's ever been on. We went to pick up a prescription at the walmart after she was released and they want $500.00 a month. Turns out her dad dropped her off his insurance. Until I get that situation resolved.
Abilify, Geodon, and Invega are atypical antipsychotic medication. They are not typically helpful for ADHD. Medications like Adderall can worsen paranoia and delusions. Perhaps a non-stimulant medication like Straterra would be of benefit.
Zoloft 200mg, Adderall 20mg, Ambien 10mg. We know I prob need a mood stabilizer, but Seroquel was the only one I could tolerate. It's just no longer worth the risk of falling.
Would Zyprexz and Geodon together work well along with the medications im on now,Lamictal, Adderall, Zoloft, Oxyycodone, Ativan, Topimax, and Clonadine ? I would so greatly appreciate an answer ASAP, if that is being there is one out there.
Hi. I am taking Risperdal and 300 mg. effexor xr and 20 mg. Celexa. It has been trial and error but finally with the increase of the effexor xr and addition of Celexa I still have some depression and some mood swings but overall, I am MUCH better. I took Prozac for many years and really good success, really worked great for me and after several years it lost it's effect on me. Sometimes it it a matter of increasing your present meds. Best of luck to you.
The others made him more eotional. Wil my little one - she has ADHD/ Tourette's and OCD - the adderall worked great (whe is on 10 mg) but she is an absolute ***** on it. I have ADHD and cannot function well without my adderall - I was diagnosed after my kids. Twenty years of being screamed at foer a messy house - then came adderall and my hubby adores me again.
I take Lamictal, wellbutrin, klonopin, geodon, vistaril, and now vyvanase (although strattera helped my moods a lot better plus the ADHD symptoms it caused breathing problems at 80 mg a day). I have severe insomnia and a lot of meds work opposite on me, hence making me a 'problem child' for any pdoc I've had. So the new combo seems to be doing well, but I would like to take a smaller dosage of the strattera as well. Don't see pdoc until 10/27.
i am on adderall,lamictal and xanax. and have had failed attempts on cymbalta,lexapro and concerta. so weird!
Not to mention that another doctor diagnosed me previous to this doctor as ADD, so I was on Adderall XR 20 mg and Cymbalta 60 mg. My Pdoc told me that it was a horrible combo for me - and progressively took me off of Cymbalta (withdrawals sucked big time) and put me on a progressively increasing Lamactical dose. I went from 12.5 to 25 to 50 and now I am getting to the 100mg stage. My issue is that I have had bouts with nausia, diarhea, and bad headaches.
I am on several medications, including Adderall, Saphris, Cogentin, Geodon, and Nuvigil. None of these medications have been introduced near the start of my symptoms. I had an ear infection about a week before these symptoms started, but it seems to have cleared up fine and my GP says my ear is okay. My chest x-ray was normal. The pain tends to be about a 4 to a 6 on a pain scale of 1-10.
I've been on Lamictal before. As far as antipsychotics go, I've tried Abilify, Geodon, and Risperdal. My psychiatrist has been suggesting ECT for the past year or so. I told him that I did not want to do ECT until ALL other options have been tried. But it seems to me that there aren't really any options left now...
Oh yeah--another thing--I have been taking Adderall (w/o a prescription) on and off since I was 18. I am now 24. All of the side effects listed (besides Coma and Death) I have experienced. The prospect of having Serotonin Syndrome seriously frightens me. What do you think? I realize that the first thing I need to do is to stop abusing the Adderall. I have realized that for a long time. I have become so used to relying on it--I am an addict.
I was wondering where the best place for me would be to find a complete list of medicines I should stay away from with Long QT syndrome. I have a list but it is over 5 years old, and I am in need of a new one! Thank You!
once i tried to go lower than that i found it difficult to function in my day to day activities and was getting a lot of bad panic attacks, so i went back up to the .5 three times a day dosage and felt better and consulted a psychiatrist to help with the weaning process. (i also go to a cognitive behaviour therapist for the past year or so and he has been very helpful on that part). this new psychiatrist switched me to klonopin - .5 twice a day.
