A case report of clozapine augmentation with granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF)
MetadataShow full item record
For some patients clozapine represents the only option for controlling the debilitating symptoms of schizophrenia. More tragic are those cases where previously successful treatment with clozapine is withdrawn as a result of blood dyscrasia. In this article, the authors describe such a case. In this instance it was possible to continue treatment with clozapine to good effect by using granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) as an adjunct. This article further explores the decision-making process and the clinical evidence behind this approach. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
