"Clozapine induced tacycardiea"
Posted by billy
My 18 year old son was started on clozapine for 10 days he had a pulse rate above 110bpm ,then at 8pm on a saturday he complained of being breathless and having chest pain with a pulse rate of 134bpm. I spoke to staff by phone and was told he was going to wansbeck by ambulance with a member of staff, five hours later they arrived by car and said the ambulance had not turned up !!! He was withdrawn from clozapine and is waiting for echo scan to see what damage has been caused his pulse is still around 110bpm, if anyone rang a ambulance with these symptoms it would be a blue light responce embledon ward disagreed
