Effects of Geodon

Geodon® (ziprasidone hydrochloride) is a prescription drug approved for treating schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It comes in capsule form and is typically taken twice a day. There are many beneficial effects of Geodon, although the medication is not a cure for either mental condition.
 
In previous clinical studies of Geodon for the treatment of schizophrenia, people taking the medication experienced improvements in their schizophrenia symptoms (including hallucinations and suspiciousness), compared to those not taking it. Longer studies also showed that the medication can help symptoms from returning.
 
Previous clinical studies have also shown it to be effective for bipolar disorder treatment. In these studies, the drug was effective at treating episodes of mania or mixed episodes (which involve symptoms of both mania and depression). It is also approved for bipolar disorder maintenance treatment (for long-term treatment to keep moods stabilized) when used along with lithium.
