of Geodon

The generic name of Geodon is ziprasidone. This drug falls under the class of medications known as atypical antipsychotics. Geodon is mainly used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It is also used as a reserved drug for patients who fail to respond to other typical antipsychotic agents. You can buy Geodon under the guidance of your physician if you are suffering from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder which results in extreme agitation.

Geodon works by blocking serotonin and dopamine receptors like other antipsychotic drugs. There have been no weight gain or hypercholesterolemia cases reported during Geodon use, unlike the other antipsychotic drugs, which distinguishes it from other antipsychotic drugs.

Geodon is effective in treating severe mental illnesses like schizophrenia, the characteristics of which are distorted emotions, perceptions, and thoughts. Geodon helps in symptomatic management of auditory and visual hallucinations and delusions. Geodon can also be used to treat bipolar disorder in combination with other drugs like valproic acid and lithium for symptomatic management.

Geodon is available in oral and intramuscular form. The recommended dose is Geodon 20 mg twice daily to be taken with food. The effectiveness of oral Geodon is reduced when taken on an empty stomach. The intramuscular form of Geodon is available as 20 mg vials. These should be reconstituted with 1.2 mL of water and should be administered as a single dose. The intramuscular dose is mainly used for fast symptomatic relief from schizophrenia or bipolar symptoms. The maximum oral dose of Geodon is 80 mg twice a day.
