> I realize that my overnight success with Zyprexa was unusual and that I am impatient, but even my pdoc felt that I might start to feel somewhat better by now. It's as if I am taking sugar pills. Geodon seems to have absolutly no effect on me and can't stand spending even more days of my life in this depressed state. I am not saying I am suicidal at all, just that I am sick & tired of being sick & tired. My pdoc is ready to try Lamictal now. Is it too soon to ditch the Geodon trial? I am not so sure I want to stay on this incredibly expensive drug anyway.

Lamictal and geodon can be taken together- my son is on both, and he has a wonderful psychiatrist. Also, you did not say how much geodon. Our psychiatrist thinks that under a certain dosage it just won't do anything. His target dose is 120mg, but remember this dose is for psychosis. However, I did read that for depression the dose should be at the high end also. Karen Curtis
