Be careful, it is not suggested to quit antidepressants cold turkey, I have done it about a year and a half I got so frustrated because none of the meds that I have tried to that point worked and I said the hell with it. I quit the meds and I quit the doctor, two weeks later they have to put me in a psichward under suicide watch.
Since then I never tried to do that again.

Be very careful.and go back on the geodon and come off slowly tapering in half in 2 or 3 weeks. I came off in 3 days 40mg and it threw me into chronic anxiety with tremors and quivers I still have today.  Don't take a chance and stay cold turkey.  It causes temors and chronice insomina when you get off it after more thana week. or even less...Please beware what geodon does. It is a highly potent drug. songwriterdelta. Go  a websighte The Road Back and read it quickly about sudden withdrawal from such a drug.
