Well its been 3 months since I was suddenly and without taper taken off clozapine. The first 5 weeks were horrific. I did not eat sleep and barely left the house. Since then though things have greatly improved. I feel fantastic, I have lost 50 pounds my mood is great my blood preasure is now normal and my white cell count has recovered to normal levels. This may sound stupid but my eyesight has also imporved, I no longer need reading glasses. I dont knnow if that the clozapine was affecting my eyesight but I can read a lot more clearly now.

Clozapine is a wonderful drug for some but for me it nearly killed me. I even managed a little cry yesterday whilst listening to music. It was not tears of saddness but pure emotion, Its something that I have not been able to do for years getting lost in the music and letting the hairs on the bak of your neck stand on end.

I am so happy that I am back on my old haldol depot yes it is a pain in the ass but clozapine was for me terrible.

Feeling better than I have ever been.

that's fantastic that you're feeling better again!

i thought to comment because i'm on clozaril at the moment...possibly switching back to depot (though not haldol) and the eye thing...i wear contacts and sometimes it's, like, my eyes reject them more often. or they just don't work. it's weird, but i think i relate to your vision issues and i do agree there seems to be something about clozaril doing it.

that sucks that you went cold turkey, so to speak, but i'm glad you're doing better...you sound well. xx
