Default Geodon side effects

My 16 year old daughter was placed on Geodon about one month ago, she was lacking concentration and the ability to think clearly. She couldn't concentrate on her homework or orgnize her time. Since being on Geodon, she has done remarkably well, she is able to plan her time on homework, complete assignments on time and she says she feels "calmer inside".<br>However, she just mentioned to me yesterday that she has been having what seems like breast milk secreting from her breasts sporadically. I have read that Geodon has a rare side effect of increasing levels of prolactin (a hormone that increases blood levels and effects production of unwanted breast milk)<br>I will call her physician tomorrow, but am so hesitant to remove her from this medication, since she otherwise is doing so well on it.<br><br>Please let me know if anyone has experienced this side effect, and if so did you have to go off of Geodon?<br>Many thanks,<br>
