Yes. The Mylan Brand of Clozapine is FDA rated “AB” (bioequivalent or therapeutically equivalent) to Clozaril. The FDA has approved The Mylan Brand of Clozapine tablets in both the 25 mg and 100 mg strengths. As long as the physician has not written Brand Medically Necessary (or comparable language) on the prescription, The Mylan Brand of Clozapine may be substituted. However, the pharmacy must first be registered with CPAS.
