Is 120 mg of geodon (ziprasidone) more sedating than 80 mg of geodon (ziprasidone)? 80 is not putting me to sleep

Geodon (ziprasidone) not sleep med: Geodon (ziprasidone) is not a sleep medication. It is also not high on the list of sedating medications in the class of drugs that it belongs. Before you jump to increasing the dosage you should review your meds and your psychiatric condition with your psychiatrist
