Just writing to update all of ya about my Clozapine venture. Well, this morning I awoke at 8:00, feeling quite refreshed, although I did not get up until 11:30. I think the calcuim-magnesium-zinc supplements are working, although i'm probably taking too much zinc. Clozapine still makes me tired, which I offset that by taking 3 large cups of coffee (as in 8 cups by their measurment, my cup=one mason jar [its a mason jar /w a hanmdle on it, bought at walmart, some place i usually don't go to. Which reminds me, I need to return my frosty mug, cause it cracked and all the non-toxic fluid leaked out.])
There's not really much left to say. I never got my libido back since I was on Paxil last year (well, i started to get it back, then i was put on zyprexa, then risperidrone). Of course, I haven't been trying to get it back either, it seems.....unnecessary. I'd rather not be defined by it, so I avoid it.
I haven't got hives since that first day, so it was just a one time thing I guess. Something to continue to watch out for, probably.
