Were you looking for information about Geodon? Geadon is a common misspelling of Geodon.
 
Geodon® (ziprasidone hydrochloride) is a medicine that can be prescribed to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It comes in capsule form and is usually taken by mouth twice a day. While Geodon is not a cure for bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, it can control the symptoms of these conditions by affecting certain brain chemicals (such as serotonin and dopamine).
 
Among the side effects that have been reported with Geodon are dizziness, drowsiness, weight gain, and shakiness. Seek medical attention immediately if you happen to overdose on Geodon. Symptoms of a Geodon overdose could include anxiety, drowsiness, slurred speech, and high blood pressure (hypertension).
