    I got a bottle of cough syrup from the store and I noticed it didn't have an outer or inner safety seal. I took one serving and then started to worry that maybe I shouldn't have. I called the store and they said it definitely should have had one and that it might have been returned and...

    What are the pros/cons of being on Clozapine?

    Pros/cons? I'm on 550mg, is that a high dose? A friend of mine is on 50mg. Side effects for me are half an hour after I've taken it it's like I've had a bottle of whisky and I wee in my bed sometimes and I dribble. Anyone else's experience?
