Anything that helps cognition?

Are some APs better for cognition than others?
I tried Latuda, Risperidone, Abilify and Zyprexa with Seroquel. I think Latuda was best out of those for cognition as I was able to work an office job almost full time on it for the year I was on it. But I had to stop it as I had some positive symptoms, nightmares, anger issues, bad akathisia, nausea and insomnia.

I know stimulants improve cognition as I tried a dopamine boosting supplement but it worsened my positive symptoms and made me more angry. Any other supplements for cognition? One pdoc wanted me to try Modafinil. Wellbutrin helped but made a mean commentatory voice insulting others appear.

I already take omega 3 fish oil. Did you stop Modafinil right away or did you feel its effects?

I try to read books…seems to be improving every year.

Was very sleepy all day, so doc wrote it, after 2 to 3 weeks started to get head ache and sleep went away,
I was prescribed Modalert 100 and doc stopped it.

When I talk with people especially for more than 30min my mind becomes blank and I forget what I wanted to say. Then my thoughts stop and my mind stays blank. I end up leaving as I have no thoughts to say. Sometimes people tell me I repeat myself often. I forget what I said like 20min earlier. Its annoying.

I can’t read books I don’t have patience and concentration.

It happened to me too, but these days not much though.

King mackerel head is my favorite fish, its head got lots of heathy fats.

Practicing hard mental tasks daiily is what helped me most with recovering my cognition. Exercise and diet also really help. Sarcosine helps enough that I notice it when it’s missing. The older style APs mess with my cognition, but I have few issues with the newer ones affecting it other than sedation.

My diet is fine. Exercise is a good one it increases blood circulation but I can’t exercise due to sz negative symptoms.

No, you won’t exercise because you use them as an excuse.

Not really, when I took a dopamine supplement I exercised for 2hrs non stop.

I am not the only one here who can’t exercise due to sz negative symptoms.

Modafinil should improve cognition.

Too bad it didn’t work for me. I only surfed the web mindlessly and masturbated like there was no tomorrow when I was on it.

You mean it increased your sex drive? I don’t want that.

Not only that, I consumed porn for hours straight. Whole days could go by because I was trying to find some good porn. It became freakier and freakier.

Modafinil increases norepinephrine which increases sex drive.

When I wasn’t masturbating and watching porn I was googling sh-it, for hours straight. This was when I was in school. I needed to study but modafinil ruined my studies.
