Read other Geodon threads, got some conflicting info, thought it's time for another one. difficult child busted through 120lb weight limit (psychiatrist and I agreed on this number as "try Geodon here" a few months ago) and last night we started on a tiny (20 mg) dose of Geodon (with a full meal of course) last night. psychiatrist gave a lecture about scary side effects (stiff neck or tongue, eyes rolling up) so I'll have benadryl on hand and have a prescription for some other thing (forgot name, some "..dryl") to fill if he gets these effects. I see that other threads had conflicting info about which medications do what to weight. From what I saw and read Abilify definitely makes kids very hungry. As far as I hear from the psychiatrist and read in Pavuluri's "What works for bipolar kids" Geodon is an appetite suppressant -- we are hoping a small dose will counteract Abilify appetite and will further reduce difficult child's mania (reduced by Abilify but still far from 0). Else we'll be increasing Geodon to the effective doses -- 120mg and up -- and reducing Abilify. Today difficult child's been very sleepy but there's also spring pollen allergy going around, so who knows what's doing it. Anyone has any experience with Geodon, especially with side effects? Also, does anyone have a link to overeating threads (I know there've been some good ones)? Me: single dad, 50 y.o. or so. difficult child, 10 y.o., Bipolar, 15mg Abilify, 2mg Intuniv 2 more easy child's, animals etc.
