clozapine re/initiation in the community

Anyone started or started back on clozapine outside of the hospital?

If so did you have to see the crisis team? Did you have to go to a day hospital/inpatient during the day for physical checks? If so how long for?

Thanks!

My partner nearly started it in the community and had to go to the hospital for bloods to be taken. But he wasn't with HTT or ip or day patient.

I've restarted it in the community after impulsively coming off it. Was under the home treatment team and they took blood pressure after it etc. Only had to go into the clinic for normal FBCs/bloods

Thanks guys! Thinking of going back on it and really don't want to go into hospital.

Cedrus, how long did you have to see home treatment for? How many times a day did they come and see you?

Just out of curiosity, what medication are you on now? Clozapine is a good medication.

I saw them twice a day and it wasn't too long, a few weeks at the most.

Hope you manage to get back on it with the home treatment team noodlzzz
