Has anyone tried the Sarcosine on the main page topic? Does it help?

Just curious if anyone has started on it and if it’s helping you or a waste of time?

I have been taking 4 grams of sarcosine daily for the past 11 months.

I enjoy brushing my teeth for example and showering does not seem to be a very big problem.

I have good functionality now other than some positive and negative symptoms.

The research shows it well

Does your pdoc approve of sarcosine, if I might ask?

I might ask my pdoc about taking it.
I’m afraid that it’s going to make me manic.

Sarcosine is amazing. I used to never shower, cleaning the house, or do anything beyond what I absolutely had to. But now, I shower, brush my teeth, floss, and shave every day. I still have trouble cleaning, but I can usually do it. And I’m going on walks most days. I highly recommend it.

My pdoc had never heard of it before, so I brought a few studies in to show her. She was impressed.

I started noticing an effect after about three weeks.

Wow - thanks for sharing this @ninjastar. Happy for you! Might I asked what studies you shared with your pdoc? I’d like to ask my pdoc about it in November.

Try this study

I pulled it right off this website’s page on sarcosine

It acted pretty much like too much coffee for me. I had to give it up after I tried cutting down on the dose.

Been taking it since 2014, now at 4g/day, has been a great effect on motivation. Definitely recommend it but I would start at 2g and see how it goes.

No it wont wave

So sarcosine worked decently for me at 2g a day for about a month. But can anyone tell me why it doesn’t do anything for me? Or at least why I don’t get that rush that makes me feel like I can enjoy something for once… I’m taking it anyways at 2g a day.
