@far_cry0 this one’s for you.
Like many of us suffering with SZ/SZA, we are all trying to find a cure for this horrible disease. As I was doing my daily research, I stumbled upon an old article posted by @anon93437440 in which he claimed that his SZ was cured by Niacin.
He didn’t find a cure but he did post something interesting; that Niacin acts on the prefrontal cortex of the brain. If you do not know, the prefrontal cortex is responsible for planning complex cognitive behavior, personality expression, decision making, and moderating social behavior.
I’ve always wondered why whenever I smoke a cigarette I feel as if I have motivation to get stuff done. My cognition improves and so does my mood (For a short amount of time).
After performing my own experiments, I have found out that Niacin is indeed helpful for negative symptoms of SZ. It acts on the prefrontal cortex of the brain but not like anything else. Wellbutrin, L Theanine, L Tyrosine and many others act on it as well, but not to an extent that Niacin does.
I give credit to @anon93437440 because he may have found a possible solution to negative symptoms. (But again, it doesnt apply for everyone).
I take 3 grams a day and I find my cognition has greatly improved in the last few months.
Hope this helps someone.
