This is how I get rid of drooling: Pirenzepine - Wikipedia
I’ve been taking it for almost one and a half year now. I take 100mg along with my nightly Clozapine dose.

They are basically eye drops you put on your tongue. My pdoc prescribed them to me. Ask about them. They help a lot. :gorilla::gorilla::gorilla:

I used to experience the drooling, which is a result of disruption of the swallowing reflex by clozapine. I also had trouble swallowing food. However, some couple of months ago, most of this symptom disappeared.

I tried a scopolamine patch and ipratropium nasal spray under the tongue. Alas, this did not help much, if at all.

The most useful way to address the problem was to put a towel over the pillow. When one towel got uncomfortably wet, I switched to a dry one.

Join the club! Drawling is an issue for all of us on Clozapine in think. I take the Atropine drops, and that really makes a difference.
