Re: tell me everything about geodon- good and bad babs

In reply to tell me everything about geodon- good and bad, posted by babs on January 15, 2003, at 17:45:52

Here is my personal experience:
I was on Zyprexa 20-25mgs for 6months and gained 25lbs. I weighed 190lbs in July and I am 5'8". Largely due to the weight gain with Zyprexa, I decided I wanted to try Geodon and I switched in late July. I lost 30lbs over 3months (August 1st-November 1st), although I must say considerable effort went into losing the last 15lbs. I do think losing 30lbs would have been impossible on Zyprexa. The increased appetite was horrific; I could just eat and eat and eat without ever being full. Since November my weight has fluctuated a bit up and down, especially with the holidays I gained weight. Recently I switched to a low-carb diet and have subsequently lost 8lbs. I currently weigh 155lbs. My current Geodon dose is 60mgs twice a day.
