This is Dr. David

Geodon is used to treat schizophrenia.

it should not be stopped cold turkey

you can have symptoms like nerve pain in your foot if you stop it suddenly.

trazadone should not be suddenly stopped as well. it should be slowly tapered down to stop the medication

you need to talk to your doctor and let them know you stopped these medications on your own.

let me know if you have other questions.
