It's being reported that Dress occurs in some patients between 10 days to a month after taking Geodon. The FDA is not aware of any deaths related to Geodon, but some victims needed to go to the hospital. Pfizer was previously sued by the DOJ in 2009 for marketing Geodon to children. The fine for marketing Geodon to children was $2.3 billion dollars. There was another lawsuit involving a whistle blower in 2010 which is still pending over Geodon.
