It seems to agree with my son. His blood work is fine, and he’s not having any other side effects.
He’s not even sleeping too much.
Of course, he’s only on 200 mg/day split between 2 doses.
He told his doctor that it feels like he isn’t even taking anything - she was very happy with that.
I think he needs to go up at least one more step, but I’m not rushing it. Maybe I’ll be wrong this time.
I, however, took one of his 100 mg pills by accident & it floored me for 4 days.
He has an incredible ability to metabolize drugs - and it’s not like he’s a huge guy.
I’m sure Clozapine isn’t for everyone, but it certainly seems like the right drug for him.
On the Invega Sustenna, he came out of the hospital after the initiation like a new person - when that wore off, we never got it back. Even on 234 mg, taken 1/2 a week early, it wasn’t sustainable for him - his last hospitalization was 5 days later. For me, that was the end of it. In the hospital 5 times in 10 months was too much, especially when he was fully compliant the last 3 times.
