Geodon (ziprasidone): At high enough dose, both Geodon (ziprasidone) and zyprexa can cause akathisia -- which is a sensation of inner restlessness and sometimes anxiety. These symptoms would not be "geodon withdrawal." please speak with your psychiatrist about what you're experiencing so that it can be addressed personally.
