Possibly: Balancing medications is not always easy. To do so well one must know the medications and the medical condition of the patient. The doctor who is prescribing these medications is in the best position to discuss this with you in a knowing manner. Please contact him/her.

Antipsychotic: PLEASE don't juggle your medications on your own. Use of multiple antipsychotics is not the norm. Both medications have serious potential side effects- especially Clozapine which requires regular blood monitoring. Please don't make any changes to your medication regimen without guidance from your psychiatrist.
