Do Geodon and Artane cause dryness in the mouth?

Does Geodon cause dry mouth? I am taking generic Geodon and I also take the old drug Artane (generic as well) and my mouth gets really dry. Even my eyes get dry as well. What is going on? I looked up side effects for Geodon on RXList and dry mouth is not listed.

Hi,

Geodon (Ziprasidone) can cause dry mouth as side effect.
Artane (Trihexyphenidyl), an anticholinergic can also cause dry mouth and dry eyes.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Tushar Kanti Biswas, Internal Medicine Specialist
