1. What is Clozapine Sandoz and what is it used for?

The active substance in Clozapine Sandoz is clozapine which belongs to a group of medicines called antipsychotic medicines. These are drugs used to treat specific mental illnesses such as psychosis.

Clozapine Sandoz is used to treating patients with schizophrenia where other medicines have not worked satisfactorily. Schizophrenia is a mental illness, which affects how you think, feel, and behave. You should only take this medicine if you have already tried at least two other antipsychotic medicines. One of these should be one of the newer so-called atypical antipsychotic drugs to treat schizophrenia and neither of these two drugs has worked satisfactorily or should have caused serious side effects that cannot be treated.

Clozapine Sandoz is also used to treat severe thoughts, feelings, and behavior disorders in people with Parkinson’s disease, where other drugs have not worked.

Clozapine contained in Clozapine Sandoz may also be approved for the treatment of other conditions not mentioned in this product information. Ask your doctor, pharmacist, or another healthcare professional if you have any further questions, and always follow their instructions.

Warnings and cautions

The safety precautions in this section are very important. You must follow them to minimize the risk of serious life-threatening side effects.

Before treatment with Clozapine Sandoz, tell your doctor if you have or have had:

  • blood clots or if someone in your family has had a blood clot in the past, as medicines like these have been linked to blood clots
  • glaucoma (increased pressure in the eye)

  • prostate problems or difficulty urinating

Tell your doctor immediately before taking the next Clozapine Sandoz tablet if you:

  • get signs of a cold, fever, flu-like symptoms, sore throat, or any other infection. You will then immediately need to take a blood sample to check if your symptoms are related to your medicine.

Medical and blood tests

Before starting treatment with Clozapine Sandoz, your doctor will ask you about your medical history and take a blood test to make sure that your white blood cell count is normal. It is important to find out this because your body needs white blood cells to fight your infection.

Make sure you have regular blood tests before starting treatment, during treatment, and after stopping treatment with Clozapine Sandoz.

  • Your doctor will carefully inform you when and where to go for a blood test. Clozapine Sandoz should only be taken if you have a normal number of blood cells.
  • Clozapine Sandoz can cause a large decrease in the number of white blood cells in your blood ( agranulocytosis ). Only regular blood tests can tell your doctor if you are at risk of developing agranulocytosis.
  • During the first 18 weeks of treatment, blood tests are performed once a week. Later, blood tests are taken at least once a month.
  • If there is a decrease in the number of white blood cells, you must stop Clozapine Sandoz treatment immediately. Your white blood cells will return to normal.
  • You will need to have blood tests for another 4 weeks after stopping Clozapine Sandoz treatment.

Your doctor will also examine you before you start treatment. Your doctor may take an ECG to examine your heart, but only if it is considered necessary or if you have special concerns.

If you have impaired liver function, you will need regular liver function tests while you are taking Clozapine Sandoz.

If you suffer from high blood sugar levels ( diabetes ), your doctor may need to check your blood sugar levels regularly.

Clozapine Sandoz can cause changes in blood fats. Clozapine Sandoz can lead to weight gain. Your doctor may need to check your weight and blood fats.

If you already feel dizzy or if Clozapine Sandoz makes you dizzy, dizzy, or faint, be careful when standing up from a sitting or lying position as these may increase the risk of falling.

If you need surgery or if for some reason you can not walk for a long time, discuss with your doctor the fact that you are taking Clozapine Sandoz. You are at risk of getting a blood clot in a vein ( thrombosis ).

If you are under 16 years of age, do not take Clozapine Sandoz, as there is not enough information on its use in this age group.

  • certain painkillers: pyrazolone analgesics such as phenylbutazone
  • penicillamine, a drug used to treat rheumatoid arthritis
  • cytotoxic agents, drugs used in chemotherapy
  • long-acting depot injections of antipsychotic drugs

These medicines increase your risk of developing agranulocytosis (lack of white blood cells ).

Treatment with Clozapine Sandoz with other medicines may affect how well Clozapine Sandoz and/or the other medicines work. Tell your doctor if you are planning to take, if you are taking (even if your treatment is about to end) or if you have recently taken any of the following medicines:

  • drugs used to treat depression e.g. lithium, fluvoxamine, tricyclic antidepressants, MAO inhibitors, citalopram, paroxetine, fluoxetine, and sertraline

  • benzodiazepines and other medicines used to treat anxiety and sleep disorders
  • drugs and other drugs that may affect breathing
  • drugs that control epilepsy such as phenytoin and valproic acid
  • drugs used to treat high or low blood pressure such as adrenaline and norepinephrine
  • warfarin, a drug used to prevent blood clots
  • antihistamines, medicines used for allergies such as hay fever
  • anticholinergic drugs, which are used to relieve stomach cramps, spasms, and motion sickness

  • atropine, a drug that can be used in certain eye drops or in cough and cold products
  • adrenaline, a drug used in emergencies
  • hormonal contraceptives.
