  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • My daughter has been diagnosed with borderline personality at age 15. She is now age 20 and on a cocktail of meds. The doctor has prescribed Rital for her within the past year and has recently raised it to 80 mg. per day. Is this safe given that she is taking so many other meds, especially Clozaril?
