I appreciate this forum so much. It has gotten me through the last few years of worsening symptoms, police interactions, etc., etc.
My son started Clozapine in the late fall, and I would say that only in the last few weeks when he got up to 200 mg. has he really seemed to improve. His doctor was really, really cautious with increasing the dose. He still is hearing voices and has a lot of fears, but it doesn’t seem as paralyzing.
He actually likes going to get the weekly bloodwork. The lab techs know him by name and he likes that.
Thank you to everyone here who shares their stories and make this life less isolating.
