I have recently been diagnosed with BPII. I never did well with SSRI's...I also wasn't diagnosed with BPII yet, so it was a disaster for me and I didn't know why. I would take them and was either sleeping 18 hours a day or a horrible rageaholic making risky decisions. I still didn't know my diagnosis when I tried Effoxor. It seemed to make a world of difference for me initially but topped out and really didn't address the crazy negative ruminations and paranoia I had. I added Geodon and the results were amazing!!!! I don't see a lot of stuff about Geodon on this board in general but I am willing to talk about this drug to anyone who will listen. From what I understand, there aren't weight gain issues with this drug. Hope this info helps.
