Thanks for the query,

Her agitation could be related to the illness as well as side effects of medications that she is using now. Very high doses of Gardinal, chemically phenobarbitone can cause similar problem in these children. I will advise you to get re-evaluated in a university medical centre before giving any other medications as the list of medications she is already taking is long enough. Please note the clozapine may not result in low count in each of the patient that it takes if the counts are carefully followed. Whether the agitation can come down or not, it will be difficult to comment in a given case unless the medication is taken

Hope this helps
Best wishes
