    My brother has been on Clozaril for 12 years plus. He has been in and out of hospitals his whole life and this drug has enabled him to lead somewhat of a normal life.

    My daughter has bipolar 1 and schizophrenia which I am told in combination is called "schizo-affective disorder." Going on 7 years we have had no success with any of the medications she has tried since day one.
