I hhave dystonia and tardive dyskenisia. Versed works well, but my doc won't prescribe it. They give t to me in the hospital and it stops the dystonia right away. He wants me... to take clozaril. But the side effects of sedation, weight gain, etc. and the weekly blood draws scare me. Any input? know of a good alternative? Thanks
