I haven't read that palpitations are a common side effect of geodon, but if caused them they wouldn't be permanent months after it was stopped. Anyone with frequent palpitations should have a thorough cardiac workup,preferably by a cardiologist. Outpatient heart monitoring will determine if you're experiencing cardiac arrhythmias & the when you feel palpitations. Thyroid testing is also important
