As many of you know, Gavin started on the medication Clozapine last week. He seems to be handling it pretty well. I messed up yesterday by forgetting the morning dose but I was able to fix it so we didn’t have to start over.
Lizze and I did some further research into the possible side effects and discovered that delirium is a possible side effect. That compounds our concerns because we have begun noticing changes in Gavin. He is appearing more confused then normal. He’s not remembering dates like he could normally. I was asking him things about his birthday last year that he couldn’t remember. This is VERY unusual for him. The question is whether or not the medication is at work here. He was already decompensating prior to the new meds and this would fall in line with that.
We will have to get in touch with Dr. R’s office and see what we should do, if anything. He does have his psychologist tonight so we’ll get some guidence there as well. We have to keep going with Clozapine if at all possible because we are out of other options.
