Yes: Medications works best when taken with food otherwise bio availability is lower in your blood will be difficult to find right dose . This medication has to be taken with food and right way is twice a day with food.

Geodon (ziprasidone): Geodon (ziprasidone) is usually taken twice a day with at least 500 calories of food.
