I've been on clozapine for a long time now and all of a sudden I can't sleep- it's not normal!
I really just want to feel sleepy like it used to do.
I now think my psychiatrist is prescribing fake meds... :(

I don't believe a psychiatrist could prescribe fake anti-psychotics, especially Clozapine which is a very dangerous one if you don't monitor your white blood cell count regularly.

Perhaps it's time for a medication review if it doesn't make you as tired as it used to? I'm not sure how true it is and I hope it doesn't happen with my meds any time soon but I hear it's possible to build up a resistance to these drugs.

How long have you been on them for?

If you don’t have psychotic symptoms then it is doing its job. Anyway discuss this with your pmed as a side effect of the present situation
