Clozapine is an effective antipsychotic for the management of treatment-resistant schizophrenia. It is a highly-specialized (S-100) medication, which was only available in public clozapine clinics till 2016. Patients on Clozapine are registered with a central database and need to be monitored monthly on several parameters.
Zen Waves Clinic supports people with treatment resistant schizophrenia on clozapine within a comprehensive management plan. Patients are regularly reviewed on a monthly basis at a minimum, by a Psychiatrist and a Mental Health Nurse as part of their ongoing management. We also monitor and address the metabolic side effects of clozapine and liaise closely with allied services like dietetics and diabetes educators.
