I spent 12 months trying many different medications with minimal success in suppressing the voices. Then I started clozapine. Within a few days, I experienced improvements that were unlike any others I experienced from other antipsychotic medications. During the following weeks, the voices practically disappeared. I began seeing friends again, playing the violin, and reading normally (before clozapine, I could read but not “study.”) After 18 months on clozapine, with the encouragement of my psychiatrist and support of my parents, I enrolled in the university. I graduated with high honors two years later. – Bethany
