Zuclopenthixol and risperidone in high doses (10 or 12 mg according to her weight as well) with depakine chrono and a sedative. This worked well to my brother after clozapine. Clozapine had too many side effects. What i ve understood after so many years is that depakine really does work and should be a must add on therapy. My brother was also resistant to almost all therapies. In fact to all except those 2 therapies ive mentioned.
