You need to contact your doctor. Even if there was a doctor here they could only advise you to contact your local doctor.

We can only share experiences but as @Rex Smith said - for medication advice, you require a doc.

Why is he on Clozapine, did other antipsychotics not work? 50mg is a very low dosage of Clozapine, so you might find his psychosis comes back. Is he having blood tests to check his white blood cell count?
A friend told me that in India the health care is mostly private, and you can sort of tell the doctors what you want them to do, and they usually do it?
