Just wanted to say that it is better to have hallucinations and extreme emotions than to be a sterile and well-to-do drone. My opinion of having foolishly taken this medicine.

And it also causes chronic constipation that can and does kill people.

Clozapine is probably the best anti psychotic there is. Do not be afraid to take it due to these irresponsible posts. In China it is the first line of treatment for people with schizophrenia. I was on Clozapine for seven years and those seven years meant I was symptom free and side effect free for the first time since my diagnosis in 2007. Also I lost the 5 stone I had gained on other anti psychotics. Please try every medicine your doctor provides for you. They are not against you despite what you may think. They want you to be free of painful symptoms.
