 1  Side effects of malaria prophylactic Turned into a complete zombie, rapid weight gain, speech problems, sense of being chemically lobotomised, blurred vision, difficulties in walking, zero libido, from excellent blood works to very bad blood works within weeks. I eventually faked the intake and took it only the day of blood sample. That probably saved me. Psychiatrist does not know what they administer, or worse, they know. Ban this drug now. This poison must come under legal scrutiny. Victims are often given this poison forcibly. 42 2 months

 3  Drug induced psychosis Bed wetting 3x. Drowsiness. Weight gain - up to 110kg now 64kg. Anxiety. Depression. Embarrassment. I was a drug addict from a very young teenager and constantly in trouble. I completed year 9 barely and attempted suicide at 15 with a dose of paracetamol at just about 63000mg. I was very infatuated with drugs, alcohol and my family life was unstable. I was molested as a child by my father 1 time I remember and again by him at 14. I was also raped in a caravan park at that age by a 37 year old man while looking for drugs and alcohol. This shaped me for the next few years into somebody I wouldn't recognise or want to today. I was introduced onto cloz* at 19 and I was and still am compliant. I have done a short tertiary course at university for 8 months, am part time employed as a support worker with a traineeship and hope to do a bachelor of nursing with hopes to work in an emergency department. However I am not getting support because of my achievements and how normal** I appear to be. I have moved forward with my life and grown into a mature responsible adult but I am suffering from anxiety attacks and moderate depression because I guess my past bothers me. I am embarrassed by it. I would like to try another medication. I do not want to be a mental health outpatient for the rest of my life because I haven't had my life yet. I am very driven and I am not where I want to be yet however I am slowly working towards being something I am proud of. I am getting frustrated because I pick up my prescription after a 3 minute chat to the lovely employees at mental health but I am not F 24 4 years

 5  Schizophrenia Very tired after about an hour after I take it. I get real hungry after about 20 minutes. Problems with dizziness. I need more sleep than before.

I have been told I am a difficult case. And with this drug I haven't been hospitalized a little over two years. F 45 4 years

 4  Schizoaffective Disorder Extreme drowsiness 1 hour after taking 300mg at bedtime. Very hard to get out of bed with only 6-8 hours of sleep due to the clozapine still in my system. If I have up to 10-12 hours, I wake up okay and feel normal. Do not take huge dosage during the day. You may become very drowsy or even faint. Overall, I noticed a positive change in my behavior, thinking, and outlook on life. I feel stable. M 27 3 years

 1  Borderline Personality Disorder Sedation, Weight Gain, Apathy, Paranoia I took this medicine for 6 years. During this time, I felt absolutely dead to the world, and miserable. I gained 30 pounds and got scar tissue from the blood draws. I was forced to stay on this medication for far too long, and I cannot think of one positive thing to say about it. I have been off of it for about a year now, and I feel infinitely better. The withdrawal is absolutely terrible (severe headache, -extreme- insomnia, nausea, ect.) but it is definitely worth going through to stop taking the medicine! F 13 6 years

CLOZARIL  (CLOZAPINE):  See also Warning section. This medication is used to treat certain mental/mood disorders (schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorders). Clozapine is a psychiatric medication (anti-psychotic type) that works by helping to restore the balance of certain natural substances (neurotransmitters) in the brain. Clozapine decreases hallucinations and helps prevent suicide in people who are likely to try to harm themselves. It helps you to think more clearly and positively about yourself, feel less nervous, and take part in everyday life.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
