From this study (11 months ago):
If a person smokes 7-8 cigerettes a day will they interfere with the affectiveness of the medication.
From this study (3 years ago):
I felel sleepy, and tired a lot. My thoughts are still disorganized. I have problems trying to clean house, organize my papers, paperwork and books. But I still am able to do my crossword puzzles. My eyes are sensitive to light. I have problems trying to express myself now. I used to be more extroverted in my speech and such, but since I was switched over from Geodon to Loxapine I am now much shyer and quieter. I do not like this. I prefer being a motor-mouth than being so much more quieter.
