stopping Geodon

I've been taking Geodon 80 mg a day for 6 months and I've weaned off it but it's only been 2 days without Geodon at all.  My doctor said if my symptoms came back that I should start it again.  How long does Geodon stay in your system after stopping it?  I was told it could be 2-3 weeks but I was hoping its not that long.  The reason I asked to stop it was because of excessive sweating and nausea and these started close to the time of starting Geodon.  My doctor doesn't think Geodon caused the sweating and nausea but agreed to trial off it for awhile.  I saw an endocrine doctor who found no reason for sweating and nausea.  My gyn doctor said it wasn't related to hormones.  If I find out Geodon did not cause sweating and nausea, then I'm supposed to return to my family doctor, but he originally felt it was hormone related.  Thanks for your help.
