About 300-450mg but: Clozapine has some unique side effects that require very strict monitoring that must be adhered to. Most patients do end up with less or more than the equivalent amounts of the medication based on how the medication is tolerated, so, consult with your doctor.

I am so glad that you were able to provide this information. I don't use Clozapine at all & I was going batty trying to find the conversion. Heidi
