Clozapine and weight loss???

Postby pemigewasset » Sun Apr 05, 2015 8:24 pm

I started taking clozapine about 5 or 6 months ago and my doctor told me to expect severe weight gain and an increase in appetite. However, the opposite has happened. I lost about 20 pounds since November and I can barely bring myself to eat anything. Yesterday all I had was a slice of bread with cheese. Today I had half a hashbrown. It's not that I'm intentionally not eating. I was on a higher dose and puking whenever I would half a have bite of toast but it got lowered and now I'm just not hungry but I know I need to eat. My doctor said this was very abnormal and is skeptical but regardless lowered my dose anyways. Now it's not working and I still can't eat. I'm a malnurioused cat.
Is this even possible?
