Geodon is a great drug for me too--I take 120 mg and have been on it for almost the whole time it has been available (in the U.S.). I haven't gained any weight from it. I don't know why psychiatrists prescribe Zyprexa so much--people who have mental illness don't need weight gain and diabetes to deal with. Clozapine also causes a lot of weight gain (more than Zyprexa I think) but it is superior for some refractory patients, so its use is justified.

Geodon does make me sleep a little too much--I need at least 10 hours of sleep a night or else I need to take an afternoon nap. Also, I get extrapyramidal problems from it, so I have to take benztropine (Cogentin). Other than that, Geodon is great, and I recommend it to anyone who needs this class of medications.
