I think I’ve been on it for 4 months. Only 2 more months to go to have less frequent blood tests. It’s good stuff. :slightly_smiling_face:

Yeah the bloods are the only nuisance to begin with. But like you say they get less often as time goes on.

You stopped the respirdal consta now?

I stopped taking Risperdal Consta about a month ago. I should notice the withdrawals late March or early April. Or maybe the Clozapine will just be stronger, which I hope is the case.

I reckon it will be smooth sailing. Clozapine is a great med - it’s more than able to pick up where the respiridone left off

How much is limited caffeine? 2-3 cups a day? They limit our coffee in the morning at my day program I went yesterday and we were limited to 2 cups each. But they can’t stop us from buying more coffee at a coffee shop next door lol

I drink 6 oz a day, which is about half a mug.

Recommended is no more than 200mg/day. So about 2 cups.

I’m glad you’re doing better. I no longer drink caffeinated drinks, but I do drink decaf. I don’t need coffee, I just like the taste of it. Especially when it’s cold out. Good luck!

@ninjastar I accidentally had one coffee too much and feel bad again. I think you put your finger on my problem in the mornings. Thank you!

Oh I feel better now thanks. Might try avoiding coffee altogether and just drink tea.
