Anti-anxiety? My family physician prescribed Geodon to take with my Prozac weekly. I do not have any of the disorders that it says it's to treat. Is this a good idea?

My doctor believes that Geodan can help treat bipolar disorder and axiety or panic attatacks. Getting off Risperdal. My dog died recently and I was better able to deal with the loss while on Geodon.

Geodon is absolutely worthless for anxiety or panic disorder. Great for Bi-polar issues. Get a new doc if your prescribed this for anxiety
