Hello, I'm a 22yo female living in the US. I was recently diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and Bipolar II. My doc first had me on Lamictal and it caused me to have a 4-day panic attack, anxiety, paranoia and rashes on my skin. They took me off. Now they have me on Geodon 60mg. Today is my second day taking it and I gotta say, it's hard as hell to even type this. I'm so exhausted! I had 8 hours of sleep the other night, woke up, ate a good breakfast and took my pill for the first time. I fell back asleep within an hour. 13 hours later (!!), I woke up and felt like I was drugged, like I was in a haze. My boyfriend and I went out for his birthday dinner. We had to return home early because I was so tired I almost fell asleep in my dinner. We got back home and I passed out around 10:30pm. I woke up this morning around 6:30am, ate breakfast and took my pill around 7:30am. It's now 12pm and I'm so tired. I'm trying to fight it off but I can't. I have to go back to sleep. What do I do? Is this just my body getting used to the medicine or is this how it's gonna be? I'm supposed to go up to 80mg within the next few days. I'll be a zombie! Any help/suggestions are appreciated.
