Geodon Drug Side Effects

Geodon® (ziprasidone hydrochloride) is a prescription antipsychotic drug approved for treating schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in adults. It comes in capsule form and is typically taken twice a day.
 
While most people tend to respond well to Geodon, drug side effects are possible. Some of the most common side effects that have been reported with this medicine include drowsiness, headache, nausea, and dizziness. Other, less common side effects (occurring in less than 2 percent of people using Geodon) include dry eyes, nosebleeds, and eczema.
 
In most cases, side effects of Geodon are mild and either do not require medical attention or can be treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. However, certain problems are potentially serious and should be reported to your healthcare provider immediately. Seek medical attention right away if you experience dizziness or fainting when going from a sitting or lying-down position to standing, suicidal thoughts, or any abnormal muscle movements.
