I only get this shot once a month. It has saved my life. The voices are quieter now and I have a job and I'm taking college classes online. I don't have to take two of my pills anymore either.

MY SON HAS BEEN ON SEVERAL AND THIS LAST ONE LOWERED HIS WHITE CELLS CONSIDERABLY, CLOZAPINE. WILL SEE THE DR.IN 2 DAYS AND IN THE MEANTIME HE WILL BE ON TRAZADONE WHICH DIDNT HELP HIM SLEEP AND DAPAKOTE. I LOOKED THIS MED UP AND IT SEEMS IT WILL WORK. I WILL WRITE A COMMENT AS HE TAKES IT IF THE DR. AGREES.
