Does anyone have any first hand experience of clozapine? Due to start on this medication in the next month or so but i'm worried about the common side effects including weight gain, sedation and drooling. I'm currently taking aripiprazole and suffer no side effects whatsoever but i still experience some positive symptoms including delusional thoughts, i always maintain insight into these, and hearing voices which i try to ignore and carry on as though they don't exist. My biggest issue is the negative symptoms i suffer with, they completely destroy my quality of life and i'm hoping clozapine will help with these but i'm struggling to find any decent literature on clozapine and the effect on the negative symptoms of psychosis, any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
