Hi my CPN told me that he knew a guy that was a mess and he took this medicine and he was a completely new person.
I've been offered it twice so far so they must think it would help me please let me know your experiences GOOD and BAD.

They keep offering it to me but I keep turning it down because of the potential side effects.

I have been on it for 2 months now and i feel fantastic. The only side effect i am getting is a little drooling when i am in bed. The weekly blood tests are a pain but it is really worth it.

I have suffered from paranoid schizophrenia for years now and have tried many old and new antipsychotics including depots but a year or so I was put on clozapine and it has worked wonders. Now after 3 and a half years I am finally out of hospital!!! The side affects are a bit annoying especially the drowsiness and dribbling. I am now at home with my girlfriend and daughter and it's all down to clozapine

Clozapine is considered to be the last line of defence in schizophrenia, and is usually offered to those who have 'treatment resistant schizophrenia', where conventional meds have either failed to have any therapeutic impact, or where their side-effects prove too hard to cope with.

I was on it for a period of about four months, many years ago now. I didn't get any relief, and the side-effects were horrible. I so so unwell at the time, that regular trips to the hospital for blood tests really put a strain on me.

Some people give a good account of it, though. What works for one, doesn't work for another. You can only give it a try, and see how it goes for you :)
