Clozapine Doses


#1

Okay so in a nutshell I have been taking 25mg of clozapine for the last 7 years.
I was always told that in order for this medication to work it has to be up near 300mg or more
Can anyone tell me if 25mg is okay?


#2

I’m on 325 all together
25 sounds very low
What are you taking it for?


#3

I’m taking 300mg. I also think 25mg seems low


#4

I was on 300 and it made me sleep too much and eat too much. When I was in the court system my pdoc had me on 25 or 50 just to get me through trial. Idk I think this powerful drug would help at 25 mg but maybe recommend more. 300 was wayyyyyy too much for me to tolerate.


#5

I take this for schizophrenia. Now if 25mg has worked for 7 years I really am amazed


#6

Do you find that your speech is low or delayed? I find on a really low dose i can talk normal and fast
It feels like effort when I try and talk on a high dose
I was at 300 at one point for like 2 years but that was a long long time ago. Sorry just been curious :blush:


#7

Are you still on this? What dose you on now
Your right about it being a powerful drug, I think it is the root cause to my anxiety that’s why I chose the low dose


#8

How are you finding the 300 dose?
Any issues you’d like to share with me, I would like to know more about the higher dose as it was years ago when I was at that level
