Failed divided clozapine dose


#1

So pdoc suggested taking some of the clozapine dose in the morning and some at bed time due to side effects. Well today I took tiny 25mg dose in morning and was very sleepy the whole afternoon and couldnt do anything.

Felt better in the evening. Now I will have to take the entire 225mg dose at bedtime instead of divided dose.


#2

I take 50 mg of Clozapine in the morning and I don’t feel tired. When I was on Benedryl I think I was insanely tired. Maybe the Clozapine is interacting with something.


#3

Well I did took paroxetine after 45mins of taking clozapine 25mg. It prolly increases clozapine blood levels. But who cares, I cant stop the morning paroxetine.
