Clozapine Assistance Line

Phone: 330.325.6848 Email:

I was once working at a state hospital and became the doctor for a woman with schizophrenia. She had been continuously ill for 20 years, bouncing between the hospital, the street and sometimes the jail. She had experienced really horrible traumas. Within two months of starting clozapine, she was able, for the first time since becoming ill, to actively participate in her discharge planning. She took her medication regularly because she felt that it really helped her. She got her own apartment. Clozapine helped her break the cycle of illness and homelessness and allowed her to reclaim a life in which she was in charge.
