my daughter has schizophrenia, diagnosed three years ago. Todate she has tried Risperidol, Geodone, Abilify. Cloxapine is the last trick in the book. I'm very concerned. She has been on 25 g=mg for a week. Last night I increased her dose to 50=mg. She sleeps for about two hours in the afternoon. In the morning she takes a walk, and is working with a trainer. Today is her first day back with the trainer, not sure how this will go until she gets home. At times I want to stop all meds and do the natural approach to this disease. My fear is that she will take off during a physicotic episode and be hurt, she is only 29. Three years ago she had a year and half of working and living a normal life, some hallucinations but not debilitating. Stress of her car breaking down and work stress started a down hill spirial. At times I think the medication has made her worse. Any thoughts on Clozapine/Clozaril.
