In brief: Try to avoid it

You should try to avoid grapes or grapefruit while on Geodon (ziprasidone).
When the drug is swallowed, some of it is broken down to inactive form by enzymes. Grape juice can interfere with the action of those enzymes so more of the drug can be absorbed, This can lead to some heart problems while on Geodon (ziprasidone).
