It’s because I’ve been taking ibuprofen for my sickness and I take 2 for that so without even thinking I popped 2 geodon pills. UGH. I guess I just skip my next dose?? Either I’m going to be tripping balls or I’m gonna get bad akathisia, who knows.
Nooo the pharmacist says just continue your regular do not skip a dose. Please rest if you can
I’m very nervous now
Nothing will happen. So you took 80 instead of 40?
Also last night when I took it early in the morning while sleeping I got bad akathisia and it felt like if I let myself fall asleep I would die but I was simultaneously very sleepy it was really unpleasant so I think taking it and falling asleep right after affects me strangely.
Really weird bc if I take it at say 6 pm and it makes me sleepy around 10 pm if I fall asleep I have no problems. But if I take it and then fall asleep RIGHT AFTER I have problems. I think maybe because when you sleep it shuts down digestion so I’m not actually digesting the 500 calories.
Yeah and my last dose was like 14 hours ago
Hmmm I know abilify is more stimulating than other anti-psychotics but when I haven’t taken it in a while it makes me sleep. So maybe the doubled dose of geoden will make you sleep. Maybe not. But don’t skip your next dose like @MissMermaid said. Keep us updated. If you don’t post for a while we’ll know you just went to bed.
It’s been an hour now and nothing bad has happened, I just feel very calm and sleepy
I’d also say follow your next dose as usual, a little extra geodon while you sleep should be ok in my non licensed opinion
Does your doctor have an after-hours line you can call? It might give you peace of mind. But yeah, you’re supposed to continue your next dose as normal. And report this to your doctor when they open back up.
I don’t see her anymore I had my last session last week. I’m leaving soon after all!
Yeah of course I have been told also to continue the medication as normal if I take 2 pills instead of one.
A worst situation would be to do like me the last week. I forgot to go the drug store to take my pills. I always take my pills before sleeping. So this time I couldn’t take any of my pills and because of that, I slept very badly and I had a bad day the next day.
Yeah pretty much nothing happened so I was worried for nothing.
Your story makes me think of how I’m getting low on klonopin and like I need dat to help deal with the akathisia so I’m gettin nervous about that. I get more tomorrow but even though I told my prescriber .5 mg doesn’t work for me anymore she prescribed .5 again so I’ll have to take 2 and they won’t last as long.
Sleep it off… it’ll be OK.
