American Journal of Therapeutics, 07/11/2012
Nongpiur A et al. – Clozapine has been reported to cause agranulocytosis, neutropenia, and leucopenia that usually occur within 18 weeks of initiation of treatment. The authors report a case of delayed onset leucopenia after 11 years of treatment with clozapine, which reversed within a few days after discontinuation of medication.
