Geodon Side Effects

Geodon Side Effects

Individuals who encounter bothersome or troubling Geodon side effects may face even more challenging side effects when choosing to discontinue the medication and endure Geodon withdrawal. At Alternative to Meds Center, effective Geodon side effects help methods have been discovered to simplify the experience of eliminating side effects.


Dizziness, headaches, and nausea are among the most common Geodon medication side effects. Less common side effects occur in 2% or less of medication users, including nosebleeds, eczema, and dry eyes. Geodon is a second-generation, atypical; antipsychotic usually prescribed for the treatment of mental health disorder symptoms, including symptoms of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. All side effects should be reported to a healthcare provider, whether they are common or not; serious or not. However, there are possible Geodon side effects in adults and children both that are known to be serious and may even require hospitalization or drug rehabilitation. Serious side effects include high blood pressure, anxiety, abnormal muscle movements and Geodon long term side effects.

Long term use of this medication can cause an individual to develop physical and psychological dependence or antipsychotic addiction, drug tolerance, and Geodon withdrawal symptoms when the drug is discontinued. People are usually put on antipsychotic meds when other medications have failed to work, or during a psychotic break. Antipsychotics, while seemingly effective during onset, are generally not tolerated well for long-term use. Individuals medicated on antipsychotics usually find it hard to set goals and function in life as they would like to, and may be unable to perceive life’s rewards. These Geodon adverse effects are sometimes deemed as better than suffering from a loss of sleep in the case of insomnia, or continued hospital visits, so the individual remains on this medication.

In clinical trials that have researched this medication, the most frequently occurring Geodon antipsychotic side effects included: drowsiness in up to 31% of individuals taking the drug; headaches in up to 18%, dizziness in up to 16%, weight gain in up to 10%, nausea in up to 10%, constipation in up to 9%, respiratory tract infections in up to 8%, and heartburn or indigestion in up to 8% of users of this medication. Additional side effects that are common among people who use this drug (occurring in 2-6%) include: fungal infections, chest pain, rapid heart rate (tachycardia), vision problems, speech problems, accidental injury, and difficulty swallowing. Allergic reaction signs include: rash, hives, itching, wheezing, swelling, and difficulty swallowing or breathing. Individuals suffering these problems may consider Geodon side effects help.

Severe and rare antipsychotic side effects include but are not limited to: signs of diabetes, such as: extreme hunger, increased thirst, high blood sugar, and frequent urination; abnormal muscle movements (can become permanent if this drug is not quickly discontinued), tardive dyskinesia fainting, rapid weight gain, abnormal ejaculation, pneumonia, anemia, gout, and signs of neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS) which include: stiff muscles high fever, irregular pulse, irregular blood pressure, and irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias). Individuals are often prescribed an antipsychotic during psychotic episodes or when other drugs burdened them with side effects or didn’t work. At Alternative to Meds Center, we search for underlying causes of why these drugs would have initially been proscribed.

We work with our medical professionals and first lab test to identify causes and toxins are usually found as the problem. Then we aim to clear the individual of these toxins by restricting use of sugar, processed food, cigarettes and caffeine and adding supplements to their diet that are known to benefit them in their specific situation. Our program works to support neurochemistry with all natural substances, remove neurotoxins that have been accumulated environmentally, and targeted therapy for nutrition such as IV amino acid therapy, support from staff and peers, yoga, massage, personal training for exercise, and natural therapies equipped for stopping Geodon side effects.

We are aware that there are alternative answers other than a whole lifetime of antipsychotic medicating, repeated hospital visits, and side effects. You are invited to call us to talk and receive an idea of the sort of Geodon side effects help which is available
