Clozapine does stuff the NO OTHER ANTIPSYCHOTIC can possibly hope to do, in good ways. It's neither an atypical nor a typical antipsychotic; rather, it is in it's own class. It was the only drug that even TOUCHED my psychosis. I've maxed out the dose to within my toxicity levels and have bolstered it up with a modest dose of Amisulpride, a typical, and between them it does the trick. Highly recommended, side effects and all!

(Side effects for me were primarily sleeping 16 hours a day, eating tonnes and retaining weight).

Hi

I've been on Clozapine - twice. It helped the first time, just made me feel better overall. Gained weight, lowered my BP and slept a lot.  Also expect lots of drool (saliva) on your pillow when you wake up in the morning.

2nd time around it helped clear the "fog" in my brain.  I could think clearer!!!  But recently have switched again due to the over-the-top blood work required.

Talk to your pdoc and weigh out the pros/cons of the drug. There is a reason why it's considered the "gold" standard drug to measure other drugs effectiveness on psychosis.
