I am doing well on the 80mg. At 120mg I lost the good sleep aspect, which my doc told me was usual. She said that at higher doses Geodon doesn't really help with sleep. I'm not really psychotic, I am taking it as my main bipolar II med.
It has helped stabilize my moods and keep me from getting too high or too low.
At 120mg I just felt out of it and flat. I just really couldn't function for long.
I know if I ever feel I am in crisis and having a hard time, or if I feel the mania coming back, I can always up it by 20mg.
But for now, I am doing good on the Geodon/Klonopin combo and I am finally sleeping, which is priceless! Plus, I have a personality again!
