Well he pick up the pieces and throw me away?
No, I think he’ll probably call 911. Finding the body will get him questioned. Disposing of the body will get him arrested.
Are you doing okay, @roxanna?
I’m alright. I keep fainting on clozaril. Side effect. I hope it goes away. How are you?
Are you taking magnesium supplement @roxanna? I take magnesium citrate powder for muscle weakness side effect. Helps with my anxiety, headache and backpain too.
No not yet. Are you on clozaril?
I’d run anything “extra” past your doctor first.

Yes I know. I see my pdoc later this month. I’ve got to say I’m doing pretty good with not being as scared about clozaril anymore. I just don’t want to pass out everyday.
Did you get all your electrolytes checked? low magnesium causes fainting at least
They drew my blood at the er. It was the only thing they found was low magnesium.
I started magnesium with milk, but now taking both magnesium citrate and chocolate milk
I faint on Geodon if I try to get up too fast when I wake up in the morning . I have to be careful. The doctors call it syncope and collapse. They will probably do an MRI on you. They did for me. At least a CAT scan.
Does it just happen randomly or if you do a certain thing? I just have to lie in bed a few minutes in the morning before I try to get up or I hit the floor.
I have low magnesium levels and I don’t feel faint.
It’s more likely the clozapine @roxanna.
Talk with your doctor.
I have orthostatic hypotension which is a drop in blood pressure which makes me very dizzy and occasionally fainting. I take clozapine. I’m now going to be wearing compression socks. May help.
It happens randomly. I could be sitting and it starts. Apparently it’s a common side effect. How do you get rid of it?
Tell your psychiatrist immediately @roxanna.
I went to the er wave. I went unconscious. All they did was toll magnesium through me. I told my caseworker.
I guess if it keeps happening they’ll take me off of clozaril?
