Clozapine / schizophrenia

My son has been in the Hospital for 6 weeks for schizophrenia. He is on his fourth medicine (clozapine). The first week he was taking 25mg, then 50mg & only heard voices a little, now going on his 3rd week and almost up to 200mg and the voices are stronger and getting a little violent. Is this normal? ## Hi Dennis. I'm here to help. I have a 19 yr old daughter in your same situation. This medicine is poison point blank and the symptoms and side effects only get worse the higher the milligrams and the longer the individuals is on this medication. Stop allowing them to give yr son more and try to talk to someone about winging him off this medicine slowly. I can tell you they're not gonna recommend this because they make a killing off of making us sick off this medicine telling...

Clozpine Withdrawal

I gradually reduced and totally stopped Clozapine about 6 weeks ago and since that time I have had bad physical side effects: pain above right ear and in jaw with lots of grating sounds when I chew, sweating like you would not believe when hungry and of course the insomnia. I ws on Clozapine for roughly 17 years but it turns out that I was misdiagnosed and do not and never did have schizophrenia although did have psychosis caused by something else. I was wondering if anyone here has any thoughts ## Hello, Dragon! How are you? I'm sorry that you've been so miserable. Those are typical withdrawal effects for suddenly stopping such a medication. You may also experience rebound depression and anxiety, as listed by the FDA. It is really a matter of time, after being on it for so many...

Sizopin 400mg alternatives

My son is hospitalized in a psychiatric hospital. Doctors are giving him Sizopin 400mg. What i understand is that 400mgs is the highest available dosage. Doctors are thinking about trying an alternative medicine. What is your view on this? ## My son has been on Clozapine for the last 20 yrs and presently on Sizopin 400 mg and Ativan sos. The condition is yet to stabilize and he leads far from a normal life. He has been suffering from Schizphrenia for over 25 years. Doctors are doing their best to treat it but there is no definite cure it seems which could bring a 39-year-old person back to a normal life. Any suggestions or advise for further treatment? What if sizopin 400 mg is not enough to control chronic schizophrenia? Do doctors have a definite cure or simply the medical science to ...

Schizo relapse after off clozapine x wk

My son is schizophrenia X11 yrs. he takes clozapine 500 mg. risperadone 6 mg, and clonazepam 4 mg. he takes all of this at night and has been for 7 yrs. this past wk he has suffered a MAJOR relapse. I brought him to see his shrink to day and he ups his risperadone to 8 mg. My son sets up his meds in a wk long med box, I check them just by counting the pills and knowing the colors. As I was preparing his meds tonight I noticed there were an awful lot of clozapine left in the bottle. Upon further checking I realized he had been taking 5 (1mg) tablets of clonazepam instead of clozapine! The 2 pills almost are identical. So he was accidentally off his clozapine for 1 wk, this explains his super bad relapse. I decided to give him 100mg of cloz(instead of his usual 500mg dose) he ways 250lbs....

son taking clozapine,depressed and sleeping all the time

my son started taking clozapine a month ago. He is supposed to be taking 300mg a day in three segments. I can't even get him awake long enough to take all of it. When i tried to give him the 200 at nite he gets sick and throws up. He won't eat befor he takes it either, very rebellious. He also takes depakote, xanax, propranalol and paxil. He has high anxiety levels and is still delusional. He wants to be delusional when it is fun, but it's not always fun.He is totally secluded except for his family, which is only mom,dad and sister. He has no interest in nothing since he started taking it. ## Have you talked to his doctor about these issues? I'm not a doctor myself, but from what I know about medications, it certainly sounds like he might need some medication adjustments...
