This has improved my mood tremendously. I am a lot less irratible and have been able to maintain my calm almost without effort. To add to this, I have been on Geodon for less than a week. I have been through many different therapies for my condition and this almost immediate effect has given me some hope of a more normal life. All this and I am on VNS Therapy as well.

This drug worked for me in the first 2wks I took it. It changed my life and made my family more at ease. My moods are predictable and not at all violent, spend happy, or depressed. I've been on it for 2yrs and it continues to work.
