Please be specific: It would be helpful if you could be more specific. Many questions come to mind. What dose of Saphris (asenapine) were you on previously? How fast were you tapered off? What dose of Geodon are you on? Do you have any other symptoms aside from insomnia? Please resubmit your question and/or discuss your concerns with your prescriber in order to get the appropriate treatment. Hope this helps. All the best.
