Were you looking for information about Geodon? Geodin is a common misspelling of Geodon.
Geodon® (ziprasidone hydrochloride) is a medicine that is licensed for treating bipolar disorder and schizophrenia in adults. It is not a cure for bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, but it can significantly improve symptoms of these conditions and help prevent them from returning. Geodon, which comes in capsule form, is available by prescription and is usually taken twice daily. Side effects of Geodon can include headaches, unusual body movements, and weight gain.
If you forget to take your Geodon dosage as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose of Geodon.
