> I was wondering how the clozaril is helping your psychotic symptoms. I have taken risperdal, zyprexa, etc for problems associated with my depression, but so far none has helped.
As yes, those _other_ antipsychotic's. I seemed pretty resistant on the other ones. Well, the zyprexa was too much for me, became very agitated and shaky, not in a TD way either. Risperdal is too mild, for a tough case like me. Anyways, I haven't noticed anything from clozaril yet. Positive symptoms are hard to comeby for me anyways, unless I start not believeing that most people out there are driven by their hormones, if you'd call that a delusion. Negative symptome, I still have those, and will probably continue to have hose until 6 weeks after being on the "right" dose. Right now I'm on 75mg, and the norm I hear id 200mg. Can someone confirm that for me?
What other AP's did you take? Seroquel? Any from the typical family?
I'm still sleeping too much. That whole waking up at 8:00 bit was just merely a glitch. I'm not sure if I'm more tired now than I was previously, before i was put on clozaril, I think I was, but I was always tired. I guess I should be glad that I AM getting sleep, even if it's not restfull.
I think I'm coming down with the cold which means my white blood cell count is decreasing, I think. Hopefully, it stays within allowable limits.
