Blank mind please help

I used to write stories and now I feel like my mind is so blank I can’t. I used to take seroquel and now am coming off of it and taking Vraylar but Vraylar is causing restlessness. Vraylar makes me feel more productive and it’s kind of helping with the blank mind but if it’s causing restless increasing the dose isn’t going to help. Does anyone have any experience with a blank mind and can you please tell me what med you took that helped with this negative symptom the most?? Thanks I don’t know what to do

You mean negative symptoms or restlessness? Restlessness can happen with any med.

Negative symptoms lower productivity and cause blank mind.

Yes. I call it apathy. It’s really the only problem I have that really gets to me.

A combination of stimulants: methylphenidate or similar, and caffeine. Sometimes, one of them is enough.

Of course, stimulants are not recommended in schizophrenia, but you asked what helped.
