Can this harm me?

I haven’t drank an Energy drink since I’ve been on clozapine but I was wondering if I drink Energy drinks will it cause me problems to do with my plasma??

Caffeine can alter Clozapine plasma levels.

Would one Energy drink now and again cause the problem ?

Probably not. But you should keep an eye on things in case you start to drink a lot of them. They’re addictive.

Better ask this question to your pdoc. Better safe than sorry. Clozapine from what I gather poses more health concerns that other APs.

Energy drinks are terrible. Should only be drunk if absolutely necessary. Imo.

Was on clozapine for fifteen years,and know how somnolence and apathy works.
Was drinking caffeine from energy drinks with no problems,except all energy drinks contain a large amount of sugar.
Found energy in Wellbutrin XR.

The best person to ask is a pharmacist, because they get even more training on drugs that the pdocs do
