How Long To Get Out Of My System


Recommended Posts

I posted this message on another website but I didn't get any replies so I thought I might get better luck here!

At the moment I'm on 20mg of Zyprexa for schizophrenia. I used to be on 600mg of Clozapine but it didn't work. So my psychiatrist reduced it by 100mg every four weeks till I get off it coz he said you can't stop it suddenly. I saw him today and he said it was alright to stop the Clozapine completely. I would also would like to mention that it gave me akathisia which is another reason I want to get off it. 

My last dose of Clozapine was 200mg last night. So my question to you is how long roughly will it take to completely get out of my system?

The half life of Clozapine ranges from 4-66 hours with a mean (average) 0f 12 hours.

12hrs x 5 = 60 hours or 2.5 days. So, roughly it should mostly be out of your system in about 3+ days, though could be as long as 66hrs x 5 = 330hrs or 14 days. So 3 - 14 days.

Good luck. a.m.
