I wonder if food helps?

When it comes to akathisia w geodon? Because I’m thinking what was different about yesterday is that I took my dose with very small meals. Last night I had a big dinner and took geodon with it then and had no akathisia! Weird…

"I wonder if food helps?"
Yes every time it works when i am hungry :smile: lol
But for akathisia i don’t know. You said:

Usually i have akathisia, i feel the need to walk and i am restless during day until about 6 or 7 PM, after this hour/time i am calmly and don’t feel the need to walk

I get terrible anxiety. It feels like I’m falling off an endless cliff.

The best part from my akathisia is that i don’t have to stay all day in bed, i’m always thankful for that.

I got dyskinesia on Latuda … some weird stuff.
Now back on Geodon, I love it.

It’s not good energy it’s bad. It’s like I’m so restless I can’t do anything at all because I can’t focus on anything.

YES! You need to eat at least 500 calories with Geodon! Otherwise, it all floods your system at once, then washes out.

Thank you so much for this! I took it with a hearty meal today and no akathisia!

I use MyFitnessPal to make sure I’m eating enough calories with my med. taking Geodon on an empty stomach is just like missing a dose.

Well technically I wasn’t taking it on an empty stomach, just a small meal, so like a pumpkin loaf from Starbucks or a small frozen burrito. Definitely not 500 calories but I didn’t know I had to eat specifically that much since it just says take with food on the label
