From this study (4 months ago):
started hearing voices about 9-12 months ago. The voices herd are of people laughing(nasty) at her, making fun(nasty) of her, calling her a loser, saying she is crazy & are going to locker in a mental hospital forever, and voices lying and tricking to her. She believes the voices are from actual and sometimes specific people, but she cannot see them. Many times she thinks the voices are from people outside behind a fence, bush or around a(the) corner. Many times the voices are from people from her past, like college and/or high school.

I have used methadone 50mg for 2 plus years for chronic pain. Geodon was started 6 weeks ago. A drug interaction occurred and EKG given. It showed prolonged QT wave. Arrhythmia and low-level chest pain is present. Geodon was stopped cold-turkey and methadone is being rapidly removed 50mg to zero in 1 week. I feel completely awful like the worst flu ever and my brain feels depleted and can't think straight and more. A feeling of unease and unsettling feeling is present with a lot of anxiety and the pain is out of this world. I'm currently at 20mg of methadone and zero Geodon. I've honestly never feel as bad as this in my life and I don't know if I can make it through the weekend. Arrhythmia's feel often and more chest discomfort. Is this dangerous to my heart?? I do not know why I have to be through torment by my pain management doctor.
