Abstract

Objective: To explore the evidence around clozapine re-challenge following myocarditis. Conclusion: This case adds to the 17 cases of clozapine re-challenge following myocarditis, of which 71% were successful (12 cases). This demonstrates that re-challenge could be performed safely and effectively in the context of clozapine-induced myocarditis, if accompanied by a strict and rigorous monitoring protocol.
