I have never been diagnosed with Schizophrenia and when asked to start Clozapine was detained under the mental health act and was given no information about it. I thought they are the doctors, they know best. I found out many years later that I have a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder. I was taking 450mg daily of Clozapine and spent the best part of 7 years sleeping or lying on the couch. I don't believe it was the correct medication for me. My concern now is that I worry if there are any long term effects to my health despite not taking it any more and in particular can it shorten my life expectancy?
