Clozapine - Long Term Use
Posted by hellsbells

Please does anyone know; my husband has now been on Clozapine for several years, and alongside many of the usual side effects he now is experiencing concentration issues, such as becoming agitated when reading, and he loves reading?

Does anyone else out there know of this side effect from long term useage.

Also I also heard that long term use of anti-psychotic medication can cause a shorter life and also that once a year he should be offered a medical?

As the mental health services are poor to say the least where we live and the joined up working between the GP and the psychiatrist seem poor as to what the medical should include, I wondered if you had anyone who knew the answer to this?

Many thanks for your help..
