I remember Geodon made me manic and irritable and I don't do well on it. Everyone reacts differently to every medication and there are other choices as regards antipsychotics. Speak to her psychiatrist about this.

I've never heard of it happening personally but I know multiple different websites state it can be a side effect.  I did really well on Geodon except it gave me bad memory loss and made me feel stupid on some days and muted some of my personality traits.

Yes. I wad on geodon it did make me very irritable and hard to get a long with. I have a very bad tempter and aggression. I would also have screaming fits. I had been taking it for 5 year till I found out I needed emergency gal bladder surgery. The doctors didn't want to admit it was that but I always felt sick on ths medication. I finally got off it and doing much better of zyprexa and lithium

YES! i went through this and i thought i was the only one. funny thing, i just read this on my about com newsletter and they were talking about it, and was saying that people with higher bmi's makes it less effective. and i wrote the very same thing we are talking about here.
i went so aggressively nuts. i would scream kick i would pace all the time. pull my hair out. i would be hurtful to others mentally and physically. i went completly manic. i didnt know what that was until i was on that pill.
