My son is starting this med today. When will we see the effects of the drug?

Clozaril (clozapine) usually starts to show signs of affect in about 1-2 weeks. That is an interesting medication, may I ask what your son's diagnosis is and his age. If you don't feel like posting it here, you can always click on my name and select ask a private question. I work at a psych hospital and I have some experience with this medication if you have any further questions.
