Common Questions and Answers about Geodon lawsuit

geodon

I have been on 320mg of Geodon for about a year now for anger. I made the decision about two weeks ago that I wanted to get off the medication because it was causing my legs to shake and causing me to grind my teeth and clinch my jaw all day long. It also was making me really sleepy in the mornings. I was taking 3 pills at night and 1 pill in the morning. My Dr told me to first take away the morning pill for 3 days and then knock off one pill at night every third day..

After all, he had graduated from Harvard, how could I question his knowledge and expertise......I wished that I had.
Just went to an inservice on geodon that was sponsered by Pfizer. Someone asked about a recent lawsuit involving neuroton (gabapentin) Pfizer just purchased the company that manufactures neurontin and the sales rep basically stated that neurotin has been misrepresented to physicians. It is ONLY to be prescribed as an anti-seizure med and for specialized pain management. In the past physicians have precribed it as a sleep aid because it is very sedating. Hope this helps.
I finally found some stabilization on Celexa and Geodon. I had been able to control my weight with Wellbutrin and Geodon, but I was diagnosed with an eating disorder, which in my opinion was a misdiagnosis because how can you not be obsessed with the scale when your on medication that could possibly make you gain weight. Anyways, I was at my lightest when I was on Wellbutrin and Geodon, but had a lapse with insanity so my medicines changed. My weight ofcourse changed as well.
