This is for anyone who is diagnosed who might be able to provide insight, as well as for family members who could share observations.
My son has been on Geodon for a little over a month. He has been responding better to it than several other medications that have been tried. Initially, he seemed to stop talking about any delusions or paranoia. Now some seem to have crept back. However, I think, I HOPE it is significant that I haven’t heard anything about aliens since he started on this med. His concerns seem to be restricted to the military, and his paranoia about them monitoring him.
Can I take this as a good sign that one of his delusions seems to be gone? And can I hope that as time continues that others can also diminish?
If he still has these delusions, will he be able to reach a point of recognizing them as delusions? The problem is not really so much the delusions, but how frightened and angry he becomes because of them and how much that disrupts his social interactions.
