Are Trifluoperazine and Clozapine compatible with each other or are they contra-indicated, as I am on those drugs to counter my Schizophrenia? I am put on thee drugs recently. Please confirm.

No they are not contra indicated with each other. Generally when clozapine is used, it is used alone in equivalent dose of required antipsychotics for the reason to control symptoms. Side effects decides about combining two or more drugs generally to reduce side effect of high dose of individual drug.
