When I was in the hospital they started me out
with a good dose of Haldol, which works fairly
quickly (a couple days for psychosis/paranoi), then they slowly raised my Clozapine. As the Clozapine dose became high enough, I stopped the Haldol.

Maybe you could do the same thing? Your doctor
probably can prescribe a more tolerable med than
haldol (abilify , geodon, zyprexa, risperdal, etc) to take while you increase the clozapine.
