Overview
Clozaril is a prescription drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment-resistant schizophrenia. Clozaril is sometimes prescribed to treat depression that has failed to respond to antidepressants. Since the FDA has not approved Clozaril specifically for this usage, it is considered “off-label.” Clozaril is also known by its drug name, Clozapine.
