Geodon Substitute

Geodon® (ziprasidone hydrochloride) is a medication often prescribed for the treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Medications that can be used as a Geodon substitute include:
 
As an addition to medication, psychosocial treatments -- including certain forms of psychotherapy (or "talk" therapy) -- are helpful in providing support, education, and guidance to people with bipolar disorder, as well as to their families. Studies have shown that psychosocial interventions can lead to increased mood stability, fewer hospitalizations, and improved functioning in several areas.
