My experience with clozapine and an inflamed heart

I was on clozapine and began feeling weak. But I didn’t tell staff at hospital so I assumed it was just a side effect. It turned out my bloods detected an elevated level of tropozone blood stress enzyme.

I was admitted to general hospital by ambulance and connected to ECG and ultrasound. My heart was inflamed.

Two weeks later and one CT scan I am out of general hospital and back into psychiatric hospital.

I hope this helps someone. I didn’t know I had a sensitivity to clozapine. It’s such a good drug because it quitens the voices.
