You're welcome Jeroen :-)
>Is this schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder?
I don't know, I'm not a psychiatrist! Have you asked your doctor for a diagnosis? What does s/he say? Do you have any paranoia at the moment? If you do, how has amantadine affected it?
If you do have schizophrenia, clozapine can be very effective. You'll need to start with a very small daily dose and increase gradually. Clozapine is often very sedating at first but the drowsiness reduces over time.
