I’ve once completely tapered down my clozapine and I struggled to sleep for months. I hope you don’t have the same problem. Now I stay on 12.5 mg to help me sleep and take Invega as an ap.

Why are you quitting Clozapine? My Dr just prescribed it for my negative and cognitive symptoms.

I was sick of the monthly bloodtests. I also did weekly bloodtest twice for the starting duration… Just sick of the blood tests really. :slight_smile:

it is last resort medicine

well, I’d like a pill for trials in life, is it possible.

my mom told my daughter at a young age, Mom needs a happy pill.
she must have thought why aren’t me and Alec making her happy.

oh gawd, yes, Beth, so happy to have you guys!

I think thats something you would need to talk to doc with :slight_smile:

I’ve thought for a while that what happened to my life is really what schizophrenia is. Not the symptoms, not talking to people that aren’t there, not having disorganized thought, not not being able to finish anything…
