Cross-taper Clozaril / Abilify
I know this would be better answered by a doctor but I don't see my new psychiatrist until 10/19.

I would like to know if it is possible to cross taper between Clozaril and Abilify or if you would have to completely go off of Clozaril first before starting Abilify?

(Currently I'm on 100mg Clozaril @ bedtime; and if started on Abilify I would start on 1 or 2mg per day)

Thanks,
Andy

Clozaril (I know not just from reading about it but because I have taken it) has a very severe side effect profile and many potential interactions with other medications that can be dangerous. The titration rate for changing from Clozaril to another medication would have to be specifically noted by a psychiatrist and written down as regards a specific schedule. There are some medications Clozaril interacts with and some that it doesn't and individual factors as well and a psychiatrist would have to determine that.
