Do I Really Need to Be on Geodon?

Question by IrishFury: Do I really need to be On Geodon?
I was in psychiatric treatment for anxiety and depression. Sometimes i cant control what i think and i have anxiety very badly. My doctor put me on celexa and geodon. Celexa is a good drug I know a few people on it. Geodon not so much… I dont know anyone who has or is on it. All I know is I am not bipolar or schizophrenic. Does it help control thoughts or inner voices involved with anxiety? Do i really need it for anxiety and depression?

Best answer:

Answer by Mad Mac
Geodon (ziprasidone HCl) is an anti-psychotic by Pfizer for the treatment of schizophrenia. Your psychiatrist probably put you on it if your mentioned to him your “inner voices involved with anxiety.” Most hallucinations are inner voices (not heard with the ears) and are experienced by many schizophrenics. I am a schizophrenic paranoid; in my experience anti-psychotics do not help much in controlling “voices”.

Good luck!

Geodon is an anti psychotic. I used it for a year….. it is very good at calming you and quieting inner voices and intrusive thoughts………… it is also very helpful for depression.
