Side effects: Geodon, ziprasidone, is a member of the "atypical neuroleptics", which does carry a low risk of movement disorder. There are too few data to assess the possible interaction with hydroquinone, which you also take. Usually, once Geodon is stopped, all side effects slowly resolve, although rarely it can take over a year & additional meds to help this process. Please see an md to help you address this.
