I just found this very informative and detailed site on the web. It is called Schitzophrenia.com. I hope you can access it. It will answer so many questions for you about your sisters behaviors. Everything you have told us so far about your sister is listed for people with Schitzophrenia.
She is so lucky to have you there to help her!
Sorry for my typo mistakes.
Clozapine is a Antipsychotic. It can help with Bipolar and Schizaphrenis. The literature says it can help with hallunication's but with too high a dose of Clozapine can actually cause hallunication's. It also says regular blood test must be given. Lithium must be monitored with blood test as well. It also says do not take Carbamazepine with Clozapine.
There are many different medications for you, your sister and the doctor to talk about and try. Everyone responds differently. Give each med she try's a chance to work before trying others. It takes a lot of time and patience. No quick fixes unfortunately.
Please talk with her doctor. Feel free to let us know what he tells you so we may be able to better help you. Remember, we are not doctors but just here to help and we can read up on literature if needed. Do you have the resources to look the side effects up so you will understand if she has or gets any of them? Aggitation, restlessness is one of them. I don't know of any medications that don't have side effects. Some you can live with and some you just can't. Tell the doctor everything.
Take care, Crystal

Yes, Antidepressant's are different than Antipsychotic's.
Some people with Bipolar can't take a Antidepressant because it causes mania for them. Others it does not. Everyone is different.
I meant I don't see euphoria mania as listed as side effect for clozapine. How do these people know that?
These people who say euphoric mania is caused by clozapine for bipolar disorder. How do they know that? Clozapine is tightly controlled here. I don't see it in any of the drug literature. How many times does she see her doctor? How often? I know in Iran, I heard and read people choose ECT first before medication.
My dearst fraind passing4years and stil thay can not faind right drug to improve and stoping talking to herself 12 timeECT what we can do more
I do not think you understand bipolar. It is not like other illness, there is no exact answer to which drug, how much, when to take it? She has to follow the doctor's orders and talk to the doctor when she doesn't feel right. It takes years to find the right combination sometimes, and much trial and error. When you have these questions, have her ask the doctor, we cannot determine her needs and reactions online. We woukd be totally guessing, if we did say what to do.
