Geodon get you high

Common Questions and Answers about Geodon get you high


Avatar n tn Hes putting me on geodon to try and get me off zyprexa and to see if i get better sleep. I am on 30 mg of zyprexa right now and life has been better, cause at one time i was on 40 mg. With all the medications I am on I still don't sleep that well. We both think I'm over medicated. The doctor says that I need to calm down and relax and wait for them to work and then he will start to slowly reduce my amounts and how much medications i am on. the objective right now is to fisrt stablize me..
Avatar n tn I would like to know more about what happened to you in your withdrawal. Did you get quivers and trremors.. II STILL can't get the tremors to stop daily and slight quivers in my shoulders--8 months later and I also have been detoxing my body through my feet.. DID YOU HAVE any such side effects? It did something to me neurologically I beleieve, but psychiartrist says he has no explantation of whyI still have hand tremors whnen I have NO anxiety at all now.
Avatar n tn Well I take 40MG of Geodon in the morning and 80MG of Geodon at night along with some other medicine due to a high level of OCD. But a while back I went cold turkey on Geodon for 2 days because I couldn't get a refill. So during those 2 days these were my main symptoms, "insomnia, shakiness, heart pounding, dizziness, vision problems".
Avatar n tn As I am sure you know Geodon is a psychotropic drug, I think you will get more help on the Medication.comm, go to Yahoo browser and type in geodon withdrawal it will take you to a mental health forum called Medication.comm, I just checked it out there is a actual Forum much like this one but more for your kind of questions, Please check it out I think it is just what your looking for.
Avatar n tn From the small amount of information I have read tells me that coming off Geodon is like going through hell and people get severely sick for weeks and some have experienced Tardive Dysknesia only after coming off the drug and even months later they still experienced these symptoms. I asked my Psychiatrist to help me come off of it and her response was, "Why? You don't need to. You may want to stay on it for the rest of your life." I am frustrated with this response.
Avatar n tn I can tell a major difference when I only consume a limited number of calories or eat the wrong food types. I have been trying to eat high-protein foods and high fiber foods together to give it maximum bioavailability and absorption in the intestines. However, I get very sleepy and feel groggy for about two hours, starting at 11 am. I take my medication 60mg @ 7:30 am-ish. I waited until 9 am to take it today to see if that helps.
Avatar m tn Some clinical trials don't even go four years. I think you mean you paid a high price for the drug. The physical, emotional and psychological effects drugs have on us can be much greater than any monetary value. I think supplements have the ability to mess with our systems as much as anything else. I personally would strive to get a balance through a healthy, balanced diet. Try a hot bath or shower or hot water bottle to relax the muscles and then try some gentle stretching exercises.
Avatar f tn My side effect is also anxiety and I feel like I cannot catch my breath. Like scary .... I am so short of breath like I cannot get enough air in. Do you have this side effect?? I am also on Clonidine for anxiety and high blood pressure. Maybe it is the combination of the two? I am so confused. The medicine is supposed to help anxiety not cause it!!
Avatar n tn You need to speak to your psychiatrist - this is the FIRST thing you should have done when the side effects started and no doubt he told you that - you must speak to doctors when you get side effects from any drug, its on every drug information sheet.
Avatar m tn So I imagine the metoprolol will be weaned down also, and you will be off it when the withdrawal is over. I was on high dose Geodon a long time ago for months. i'm not suffering from heart damage or any kind of cardiac problems with a normal heart rate and a normal blood pressure, The only time my heart rate and blood pressure goes up is when I endure physical or mental stress and that is normal.
Avatar n tn On valium - the reason its not prescribed as often as it used to be has nothing to do with the FDA and everything to do with the fact that diazepam was one of the most over prescribed drugs in history and as a consequence has become a drug of abuse - the same way Oxycodone has become a drug of abuse as has rohypnol and ritalin to name just a few of the many drugs doctors handed out like candy and as a result they are now problems world wide not to mention Valium has a serious though often exagge
Avatar m tn i have read online that patients commonly complain of chills from taking geodon and chills from withdrawing from geodon. i read online that there is a rare but existing occurence of patients who get chills from perphenazine, which i had experienced previously. it sounds like there's no way out, like i'll never be able to come off of geodon and perphenazine without getting chills. what do i do?
Avatar m tn What this means is that you need your meds when you are feeling low so its more important that you get your meds never mind the doctors attitude and like previous post have advised me if you feel that his attitude is really upsetting would you not be better to switch doctors?
Avatar f tn In three years on the Forum I think I have only heard from one member with what is called thyroid hormone resistance, requiring higher than normal levels of FT3 and FT4 to relieve symptoms Since you were already at a very high level of FT3, cutting your meds in half would be expected to have a drastic effect, as you've noticed. Since you were not yet experiencing any hyper symptoms, it would have probably been much better to reduce you gradually while monitoring symptoms and FT3 levels.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately, there's no way to know for sure if a med will cause you problems without trying it first. If you need a high strength AAP and are afraid of weight gain, there's some (mixed) evidence that the dissolving wafer form of Zyprexa--Zydis--involves much less weight gain than the traditional pill. The first generation antipsychotics don't usually come with weight gain, and may be a good option for you.
Avatar n tn I agree with you 100%. I think the only thing that can help my depression and get me out of bed is Percocet. Yet Drs do not understand this. Please let me know if there is anything else that you have found to help.
Avatar m tn Sometimes he adds something temporary to get me back together. Hope you get something to help you soon. Sorry I couldn't help you.
Avatar f tn I just take the xanax as neeeded though so I don't get addicted. You seem you are in the right place and you finally found what you needed and you are very brave for having kids with a mental illness because I don't know if I could do that with my condition the way it is. Thanks for your story.
Avatar m tn i feel the geodon is blocking my serotonin receptors totally as i've dropped down to 60 milligrams of geodon in hopes of normal sleep patterns to return. can the high dosage of geodon increase the chances of insomnia over time? i can't believe that an episode would cause this problem with insomnia. are there any solutions or ideas of how this can get rectified?
Avatar f tn I was taking 300mg of Lamictal, 10mg of Geodon, and 40mg of Lexapro when I had a manic epsiode. I had never had an episode while on meds before. Is this an unusually high dosage of Lexapro for a bipolar to be taking? I remember the pharmacist had to get special approval for prescribing the dosage.
Avatar m tn (psychiatrist, not psychologist) doesnt know about chills side effects, but of the 2 medications i'm on right now, i had past experience of chills when on a high dosage of perphenazine. so i already tried lowering geodon from 20 mg to zero mg (with my psychiatrist's consent) and that didnt work, now i'm going to try lowering the perphenazine from 4 mg to zero mg and keeping the geodon at 20 mg. hope it works.
Avatar m tn I am really worried at this point and really need some help and answers. Please answer my question and I will get back to you with any other details. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I’ve also read online in some chat rooms of people having awful withdrawal symptoms getting off Geodon. Do you know of anyone diagnosed with bipolar disorder who has been able to get off all medications entirely? I found The Road Back Program online and wondered if you knew anything about it and if people have really been successful in getting off psychotropic meds? If not, is there any other medication that might help with the bipolar and dyskinesias other than Clozaril?
2010625 tn?1329375656 What other meds are you on or what else have you tried? I've been on just about every new anti-psychotic out right now, EXCEPT geodon because I heard so many bad things about it. Risperdal worked good for me but I had to get off of it for other medical reasons. Everyone is different though. Have you tried seroquel? I'm on that now and it works very well.
Avatar n tn i have chills right now too, i used to have them as bad as you, chills and shaking, when i took a high dosage of perphenazine, and at a different time when i had a urinary infection. many psychiatric meds have chills as side effects. until recently i was taking 20 mg geodon and 4 mg perphenazine and had mild chills.
Avatar n tn Some of the risks of taking Geodon is that you could acquire neurological complications such as tardive dyskenesia, dystonia, muscle weakness, tremors and twitches. The really scary part is that the longer you are on the drug the higher the risk of you getting one or more of these disorders. Some disorders such as tardive dyskenesia can be permanent. In my opinion, the risks far out weigh the benefits.
Avatar n tn its very frustrating. I use to always get wet and get butterflies in my stomach and all those good feelings and get excited. but now its just like ive lost interest and I cant stand it. I have a good relationship with my boyfriend and we havent had sex yet. but I want the sex to be good and feel normal. i dont want to feel all un interested. does anyone know what medication it could be? or shold I talk to my doctor??
1006279 tn?1250432321 Going through more than a years worth of mail and papers, getting in touch with the IRS and trying to find out how the hell to straighten that mess out, getting back inot school, and so on and so forth. I'm heading into a manic phase. Can you tell? I am hoping I can get some of this stuff accomlished before I get too wacked. I know in the back of my mind I'm overloading and planning too much. A very common issue for me. But I really think I can do this.
Avatar n tn As for better Bipolars do not get better in the sense of the flu they get stable and their moods become more normal - it takes time for meds to bed in - for most 2-4 weeks at least and sometimes longer as its different for each patient.
