Talk to Doctor: You should be following up regularly with your psychiatrist. S/he will want to know about any side effects you're having, as well as how you're doing with the symptoms for which the Geodon (ziprasidone) was originally prescribed. Hopefully you and your doctor can work on a plan so that you get good benefit, with less side effects.
