Side Effects of ClozarilAs with any medicine, side effects are possible with Clozaril. However, not everyone who takes it will experience side effects.

- Increased salivation
- Weight gain (see Clozapine and Weight Gain)
- Dizziness or vertigo (a spinning sensation)
- Insomnia (see Clozapine and Insomnia).
