Hi cybercafe,

Geodon has some serious problems, at least for me. It causes moderately severe EPS so I have to take Cogentin as an adjunct. With Cogentin I am not stiff all the time. I can't vouch for the supposed antidepressant effects of Geodon, as it didn't help my suicidal and depressive thoughts. I found an antidepressant resolved those symptoms much better. I have not had any problems with sedation or concentration after I adjusted to the medication. I do not have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, so I can't tell you how Geodon affects that sort of symptoms.

I have heard that Geodon is more like Risperdal than the other atypicals, and that it causes more EPS than others (like Zyprexa). I heard this from a doctor but don't know if it true or not. I think the big advantage to Geodon--no weight gain--makes it overall a better drug than some others. So, overall I recommend Geodon, but it has some serious drawbacks. I hope this helps.
