From 1 to 100, how much did you improve from negative symptoms and what med or supplement was used? were you doing physical exercises? Was it with any meditation?
Vraylar helped me the most when it comes to positive and negative symptoms. Probably my symptoms are 80-90% better than what they were.
I improved to the point that I’m functioning. I have more negative symptoms than positive ones. I am on perphenezine and have tried multiple ap in the past but this works for me. I lost a lot of weight and continue to do so. I think I’m successful but life of course is not perfect. I struggle, too.
Exercise, tempering, diet and “meditation” were all entirely ineffective against my negative symptoms. I actively tried different things since 2020, and more meek attempts were made in years 2018-2019.
I used to take 3-9 pills a day of brahmi supplement for two months, the normal dose is 1-2 pills a day for one month, which helped slightly while I was taking it, but any improvement vanished as soon as I stopped taking the medicine. Brahmi had no effect on my positive symptoms.
On a scale of 1-100, with 1 being the worst and 100 being the best, my negative symptoms improved from a 40/100 to a 70/100 with the right mix of Concerta and omega-3 supplements.
The doses of each are Concerta 108 mg/day and omega-3 oil 4,000 mg/day (3 DHA : 1 EPA).
Clinical pearl: my psychiatrist said that omega-3 oil keeps the receptors in the brain fluid so they can do their job (receive neurotransmitter signals).
