Just saying hi. Kinda looking for a med to replace Clauzepine. Maybe when I understand how the meds work more I will find one.

Hi Bhonest, welcome to the forums!

May I ask what the Clozapine is for? Psychosis, bipolar, schizophrenia, schizoaffective or something else?

It was my understanding that Clozapine was the daddy of all antipsychotics and is usually only used as a last resort when all else fails.

Schizoaffective, anxiety traits and OCD as well as anti social traits

Do you have any particular issues with the Clozapine? Apart from the frequent blood tests and the risk to your white blood cell count I've heard good things about it.

And what does your prescribing doctor think?

She thinks I need it because nothing else is as strong.

I'm on two antipsychotics, but even combined I doubt they're as strong as Clozapine, I can't be certain as I've never tried it myself but I'm happy enough with my current ones and the dosages.

What don't you like about Clozapine?

It puts me to bed as soon as I take it. I’d like to stay up more.
