Hello. Has anyone ever had an issue with toxicity from clozapine? My daughter takes 350 mg ( which is not high ) and her doctor just informed us that she needs to cut the med to 250 mg and be tested again to see if her levels are still high. Im hoping that she won't be completely taken off the clozapine because it has helped so much . The other medications never worked before , so I am upset about this.

Clozapine although it is often more effective also can cause problems, which is why you need to have regular blood tests while taking it. Which is all I know, sad to say. Psychiatrists are the specialists in this field.
