my son has been on this medication for 5 weeks but he is still hearing voices,how long does it take for this to go away.
Can you tell me if clozapine helps to stop voices which are in the head?

Hello rosschell. It really depends on the severity of his illness, which I am assume is Scizophrenia. His medication is a drug that is used to treat his illness and can take some time. In the treatment of schizoprenia there are two catagories of drugs. The more powerfull ones and a second group of lesser strength. There are two varities because of the difference in the state of mind, meaning the degree of illness, psychosis. There is a down side to anti-psychotics in that they do carry thier share of side effects. Anything from low blood pressure to having blurred vision. I hope that he begins to see results soon. Best of wishes to you and your son, pledge
