Caren, I'm not a mod on this forum but this is information on the medication you asked about.  I hope this helps.  http://www.geodon.com/b_home.aspx

 Serafena will be back shortly.

Hi Caren,

Here's another link to the RxList site:
www.rxlist.com/geodon-drug.htm

It's an anti-psychotic, which means it's used to calm a mania. As far as I can see, it's most common side effect seems to be sleepiness. If she experiences others, let the doc know.

Good luck,
serafena
