> When do you take your Geodon? I hear it is both activating and sedating. I am considering a trial of it in the AM

I take at dinner, as you have to take it with food. At first I was taking 80mg and it didn't help with sleep at all. My doc really wants me to get sleep, so she dropped me back to my old faithful (took it for a long time) of 40mg and I sleep like a rock!

If I had to take it during the day, I'd have to take a really high dose, as 20-40mg makes it impossible to stay awake, with a ton of coffee - which defeats the purpose. I've met very few people that can take it during the day and stay awake!

What dose are you on? Are you taking it twice a day? Any other meds you're taking?

I'm also on Trileptal.
