Goedon, which is generically known as Ziprasidone, is an atypical antipsychotic manufactured and marketed by Pfizer. Another alternative name for it is Zeldox. Geodon is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment for schizophrenia, for intramuscular injection to treat acute agitation in schizophrenic patients, and for a variety of symptoms associated with bipolar disorder.
Geodon is controversial for a number of reasons. First, there are a number of Geodon side effects that seriously damage the lives of those injured by them. Second, Pfizer has been successfully accused of misbranding Geodon. In 2009, in a Qui Tam lawsuit, Pfizer aid a settlement of $2.3 billion because it plead guilty to misbranding “with the intent to defraud and mislead.” In summary, Pfizer was promoting the use of Geodon for off-label uses, which is illegal to do, even though doctors can opt to use a drug for an off-label use.
Geodon adverse effects are very serious. Some of them are even life-debilitating. Geodon has many counterindications and might interact poorly with a number of other drugs.
Geodon side effects include, but are not limited to, the following (not all of these have been confirmed yet):
Activation into Mania
Sever Chest Pain
Impaired Erectile Function
Torsade de Pointes
Of the aforementioned side effects, the ones that are most commonly targeted in antipsychotic lawsuits are Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome and Tardive Dyskinesia. For more information about these very serious disorders, please visit our sites devoted specifically to them.
If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of taking Geodon or any other atypical antipsychotic, you might be entitled to compensation. We, at the Law Offices of Gregory Krasovsky, believe that medicines ought to heal patients rather than harm them. We see it as our duty to hold the makers of defective products responsible for their negligence and cavalier attitude toward your health.
