Clozaril (Clozapine) / Agitation
I currently take Clozaril (Clozapine) but I'm wondering if it can be used for agitation because when I'm around others I tend to either yell or holler and the other person isn't even close to that kind of speech.  I'm on a very low dose (100mg @ bedtime).  I would like to know (of course gonna ask the doctor first), could raising the dose help the agitation?

It would depend what the exact cause of the agitation was. You would have to explain the symptom to your psychiatrist so they could figure it out. Also Clozaril although its very effective for some people has a severe side effect profile which is more likely to occur when the dosage is raised.
