Clozapine - I was told that this drug has a dramatic positive effect in 10 out of 15 people who take it. Is this true? Does this medication really extinguish schizophrenic issues?

I don't know the exact statistics but yes clozapine is very effective in treating schizophrenia. Only drawback about it is some people do not prefer the constant monitoring which is required to check for side effects. But it definitely works very well.
