Some of the side effects reported with Geodon include drowsiness, weight gain, headaches, and twitching or shakiness. A few of the conditions that you should let your healthcare provider know about before you take Geodon include diabetes, seizures, epilepsy, and liver disease (including liver failure or cirrhosis).
