Hello
Thanks for this query.
Can you tell me the reson what side effects she were having with Clonapin??
Present drug is not given in affective doses.
I will suggest you to go for long acting injectables like pralidronate. Such medicine is given once in three months slowly releases in body and having few side effects.
Hope my answer helped you. Kindly give the positive feedback.
Regards
