Default Ziprasidone (Geodon)

Hi everyone!

About four weeks ago I started Geodon. I was in a severe mixed psychotic state. Within four or so days it crushed my symptoms (I started it around three weeks ago) and I have been relatively stable since. It is the first time a med has worked so well for me, and the first time in my life I have been stable. Unfortunately from yesterday I have started having mild mixed symptoms and this terrifies me.

First, has anyone else had success with Geodon and how long has your stability lasted.

Second, despite the Geodon did you find the after episode fall still occur and how bad was it?

Thanks
