9 Foods You Should NEVER Mix with Your Medication
Tiny meals & Ziprasidone
Another rarely used drug on our list is Geodon (medically called ziprasidone). This antipsychotic is most commonly used to keep mental illnesses such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder under control.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness highly recommends taking each pill with a meal of at least 500 calories (see here).
Multiple studies including this one from the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry proved that your body absorbs ziprasidone much better when consumed with hearty meals. If you take it on an empty stomach or avoid eating afterwards, its effects might decrease, which can impact your treatment negatively.
