Thanks foe using healthcare magic.

I have gone through your history.

Abilify contains aripiprazole. Standard dose of aripiprazole is 15 mg to 45 mg per day . But sometimes patients may require 60mg also.

It can be added to clozapine 400mg. Both drug may cause sedation as a side effect so be aware of it.

Please note that clozapine may cause obsessive symptoms so you may consult his psychiatrist for detailed evaluation.
If it is clozapine induced , dose need to be reduced.

Your doctor may evaluate for adding anti obsessive agents if needed.

I hope I have addressed your concern.

Feel free to revert to me in case if you have any query.
