Yes I have. It was OK I had a little bit of akathisia which was treated with procyclidine. The biggest problem was the sedation. I was sleeping all of the time.

With regards to effectiveness for me it did quieten down the voices but not enough. I eventually maxed out on the dose and then switched drug.

As with all meds. What works for me might work better for you. Good luck.

500mg fortnightly I think. The switched to haloperidol depot then clozapine.

I could be wrong with the dosage for clopixol. I am pretty sure it was 500mg and it was every 2 weeks.

I was on depixol depot first. Then risperidone consta depot then clopixol depot then haloperidol depot.
