Hi, @dqg While you’re waiting for other members to share their experiences of Geodon, I found some information on Drugs.com regarding Geodon and its side effects.

Have you been prescribed this medication?

I'm on geodone and love it. I have not experienced any of the side effects listed on the geodon website. I think the most important to note would be heart rhythm changes.

Yes I just started it. The side effects listed are serious and that’s why I am trying to get more information. I take medication for high blood pressure. Concerned about the effects on the heart

Has anyone been on either of these drugs?
They are supposed to help with depression and anxiety. Have you experienced weight gain? Any information would be helpful. Thank you.

Have experienced weight gain? Has it helped with your depression? Do you take other meds with it? Thanks for sharing.

It’s good that you’re concerned about the drug side effects and drug interaction with your anti hypertension meds. The only CV related issue I found in Medscape Drugs was tachycardia (rapid heart rate) with a 2% occurrence rate from studies. There is also orthostatic hypotension associated with it so check with your PCP or whom ever prescribed your BP meds. Hope the new meds helps you get well.
