Amphetamines for fatigue and negative symptoms

It’s possible, maybe if you take an AP that’s more sedating? There’s also shorter acting stimulants, I’m still having a little trouble with sleep so I’m probably gonna switch again soon

I wasn’t taking 10-20mg a day of Adderall and would start losing control of my delusions and hallucinations. It’s not worth it. I don’t suggest it.

I wont recommend any kind of stimulant.

Both ritalin and modafinil worsened my psychosis. Stimulants work by increasing dopamine in the brain while antipsychotics work by decreasing dopamine. Why would u want to increase a neurotransmitter(dopamine) which is already causing problems ?
