A 25-year-old male asked:

Does abilify or geodon (ziprasidone) or zyprexa have less side effects? which one has less prolactin elevation

They all do it: All of these drugs will elevate prolactin. But this prolactin elevation is usually mild and of little consequence. It is far more important to get on medications that effectively treat your psychiatric condition.
