Includes 1 test
4 Days

Serum clozapine measurement is used to monitor drug levels in the body during treatment, to monitor patients' compliance with treatment, and to evaluate any drug toxicity.

More information

Clozapine (Clozapine, Leporex), a tricyclic dibenzodiazepine, is used to symptomatically manage psychotic disorders and is considered an atypical antipsychotic drug. It is mainly used to treat patients with schizophrenia or schizo-emotional disorders at risk of recurrent suicidal behavior.

Patients treated with clozapine should be closely monitored (white blood cell count and absolute neutrophil count) during treatment due to adverse drug reactions (mainly agranulocytosis). Clozapine treatment should be discontinued in patients who do not have an acceptable clinical response, and even in patients with a positive clinical response, the need for continued treatment should be periodically reassessed.



Important Note

Laboratory test results are the most important parameter for the diagnosis and monitoring of all pathological conditions. 70%-80% of diagnostic decisions are based on laboratory tests. The correct interpretation of laboratory results allows a doctor to distinguish "healthy" from "diseased".

Laboratory test results should not be interpreted from the numerical result of a single analysis. Test results should be interpreted in relation to each individual case and family history, clinical findings, and the results of other laboratory tests and information. Your personal physician should explain the importance of your test results.

At Diagnostiki Athinon we answer any questions you may have about the test you perform in our laboratory and we contact your doctor to get the best possible medical care.
