Clozapine question

“Clozapine requires differential white blood cell monitoring weekly for 18 weeks, then fortnightly for up to one year, and then monthly.”
I have reached the 18 weeks. Now I should check it every 15 days? Is that correct?

Fortnightly - every two weeks.

Yes, 14 days, I wrote 15. The same

I dont understand why they didn’t write ‘bimonthly’. Just sounds better.

I’m running out of clozapine. I have pills for 2-3 days. Greece has no clozapine, there is a general deficiency, nor haldol injections anymore.
I fear the withdrawal symptoms

No good … what happens in case of shortages?

Pharmacies dont have an extra they can give you til more comes in?

No, nothing. I asked everywhere

That’s not good. If I were in that scenario I’d just try to sleep until it comes in.
