switched to Geodon from Abilify...experiences?

Posted by ihatedrugs on November 13, 2013, at 10:41:34

So my stint with Abilify came to an end after a month,due to increased anxiety-like symptoms, more like Akathisia. It also exacerbated my insomnia which is bad to begin with. My doctor suggested Geodon as it provides a fast anti-depressant effect and it helps with sleep. I've been on it for a week and it does offer semi-robust anti-depressant effects though not as strong as Abilify. Also I've read that weight gain shouldn't be a problem with Geodon but had to keep an eye for high blood pressure (mine tends to be on the low side). I can't find as much info on Geodon as I do on Abilify.
Abilify's "inside nervousness" drove me crazy. I couldn't sit and watch a movie or read. I had to keep on moving even if I were dead tired. I also suffer from fibromyalgia an read that Geodon my help as it has srni properties much like cymbalta or savella. I don't know if that is true as I don't really understand these meds mechanisms of action. Nonetheless, if anyone has used it, can you let me know what to expect? Please no horror "I lost my ears" stories because I will begin somatizing...foh realz!

My diagnosis is MDD treatment resistant (because they haven't found a damn pill that works)and GAD.
Fibromyalgia with mostly exhaustion and not much pain.

I take
Geodon 20mg (tried 40, didn't make me any sleepier)
Vyvanse 40mg for energey
Deplin 15mg positive for A1298 mutation
Ambien 10-20 works sometimes sometimes it doesn't even touch me.
Alprazolam 1-3mg
Lexapro 20 don't even know if it works or not

Good day
