whats ur opinion on clozapine
I used long time ago.unfortunately i can t remember anything that period of my life.its quite strong drug.i don t have any past memory of that drug.but i heard that it quite effective
It gave me heavy side effects - I was a drooling zombie, slept over 14 hours a day. It was really tough. Couldn’t take it longer than about 9 months. When I switched over to Risperdal I landed up in hospital, but quickly stabilised and went into remission. It was much better than clozapine!
I slept 20 hours a day, ate the other 4
I hated it, I gained weight and was a zombie.
Was very strong. Drooled all night and occasionally wet the bed. Wasn’t my fav med. but it is a life saver for some folk.
Clozapine was the only AP that ever did anything for me and the side effects were mild compared to the other drugs I’ve been on. If you are a non-responder to the other meds chances are it will work for you, I was.
And drooled 24/7, conscious or not.
It was an aweful experience. Slept 20 hours a day, zombie when awake, gained 50 lbs in 4 months, drooling, dissociating. Can’t say whether it helped or not hallucination wise looking back because all I remember is how bad I felt while taking it, its all I could focus on how badly I physically felt.
I’m on clozapine 225mg. The higher the dose u take, the more worse the side effects.
Paranoid delusions are gone
Sleeping 11-12 hrs on it
myoclonic jerks and muscle twitches(seizure)
