In brief: Very variable

The withdrawal from medicines in general is very variable and has multiple factors .
Half life of Geodon (ziprasidone) is 7 hrs so technically it would be eliminated fairly quickly . Compounding factor would be " why were you taking Geodon (ziprasidone) and why are you stopping and to differentiate recurrence of sx from withdrawal sx.
