I know td is rare on clozapine. I dunno if that goes to restlessness too

Clozapine was very sedating for me. I’d say it was the opposite. Lethargic. Moping around. I had extreme fatigue on clozapine. Way more than you’re supposed to I feel. I was in rehab at the time :confused: lol and I slept a lot and closed my eyes a lot.

Prolixin caused me the most restlessness of any med.

I’ve had akathisia a few times while I’ve been taking clozapine but mostly when I increased my dose. haven’t experienced any restlessness for a while, not sure if it’s caused the cloz or not. but when it does happen i take ativan right away. its a long 15 minutes for it to kick in though
