jitter bug
mn3313 posted:
so i was recently placed on ziprasidone for my bipolar disorder and i have noticed that it makes me extremely jittery, i am also a coffee-aholic and i was wondering if anyone else had this problem and if it was caused by my caffeine intake. please help me i feel like im going to jump out of my skin :0
mercygive responded:
I would suggest that you stop drinking coffee and other caffeines for a while to see if the jittery feeling stops, and call your doctor to tell him about the side effects you are having.

thank you hopefully it goes away!
