Resumen

La combinación de clozapina y otros medicamentos potencialmente leucocitopénicos puede plantear un riesgo mayor de neutrocitopenia. Sin embargo, la neutrocitopenia puede no deberse siempre a la clozapina. Al añadir medicamentos potencialmente leucocitopénicos, los profesionales clínicos deben buscar posibles alternativas, en especial porque la clozapina es un fármaco que se utiliza a menudo como último recurso en el tratamiento de la esquizofrenia resistente.
