Secondary effects: Both medications have the capacity to cause secondary effects on the skin, geodon (ziprasidone) more likely than cogentin. The skin eruption may not be related to the meds. This should be discussed with your prescribing physician to allow for a mutual agreement on how to go forward with therapy. The need for the medications will likely outweigh the effect of medications on the skin. Take care.
