peopleneedpeople Posted December 19, 2011 Share Posted December 19, 2011 Been a long time follower of the site and decided to post my observations. I'm not putting this in the antipsychotic forum coz well this is about the antipsychotic clozaril for people just with schizophrenia. I've never felt so overwhelmed by pdocs, nurses and basically anyone who works in medicine going on and on and on about clozaril. I suffer from schizophrenia myself and I've tried this so called Gold Standard Antipsychotic about how many times?? A LOT. No success. I was Maxed out on 900mg at one point. Every psych ward admission every other person with schiz. I've met doesn't matter if it's their first time they've have been in a psych ward or their 100th time in there it's always clozaril. I met a guy who has never ever been on an antipsychotic before and his pdoc who wanted 'special permission' from his parents to try clozaril FIRST. Ahhhh... WTF! This is meant to be a last ditch, last resort and basically last antipsychotic they are meant to try. I'm in Aus. and wanted to know for most of you guys in the States do they try to put all schizophrenics on clozaril? Is there such a rush and urgency to put everyone on it in the U.S? Or is it just Aus.? Honestly saying one drug is better than the other isn't on or right. Doesn't matter if it's an antipsychotic or an antidepressant or just any drug. Hey we all know that.
