A 25-year-old male asked:

Geodon (ziprasidone) and sleep: Both Abilify and Geodon (ziprasidone) are used for the same issues. Abilify is generally not helpful for sleep since it has so little sedation. Geodon (ziprasidone) can be an excellent sleep. Inducer as well as stabilizing mood. Remember that Geodon (ziprasidone) requires food to be absorbed-it is best taken after a meal. We generally do not prescribe 2 medications in the same class. Talk to your prescribing md for solutions.

Akathisia/RLS: Akathisia is a side effect from certain medications. Typically this occurs with meds from the antipsychotic class because of Dopamine effects in the brain. It can be confused with restless leg syndrome. Some people have a slight degree of restless leg syndrome, and can be aggravated by many medications such as antihistamines, antidepressants, and yes stimulants. Very treatable-tell your md!

Therapist ASAP: I promise there are caring psychiatrists who would listen and help you formulate some answers. Go ahead and find a reliable therapist asap. You can find well respected therapists on websites such as psychology today, or seek a website where patients give feedback on their therapist. Often, your primary care physician will know who to refer you to. No one who feels this bad should go it alone.
