Clozapine and Irritability


#1

I’ve been on Clozapine/clozaril for a week now, and I feel even worse than when I started. I’m so damn irritable, I’m snapping at everyone, even ppl who are trying to help me. To anyone who’s on this med: does the irritability go away?

Also, I know it increases appetite. I’m already overweight, and I have an eating disorder that causes me to either overeat at times or eat nothing at all. Will the weight gain plateau, or will I always be this hungry, even after eating a full meal? (or 6 full meals in a day like today.)

Alot of medications can affect your mood when dosage is adjusted or introduced just try to breath stick with cloazapine it works wonders for alot of people
