Hello all. Is anyone here on amisulpride for negative symptoms? I just started 50 mg amisulpride. My main negative symptoms are avolition and alogia and they are quite severe.
Hi @Lolita welcome to the forum.
Hi there, welcome. Sorry you are struggling with those symptoms.
I do not suffer from alogia, but avolition is a main symptom for me now (maybe the main symptom). It is mixed with low energy because of some physical trouble, so I don’t really know what is what. @everhopeful just posted research about negatives. I’m researching how to treat them…should I find something that works for me, I will let you know. I’m not on meds for it…I am curious whether amisulpride works.
I think @Hadeda is on amisulpride
Thank you Turtle41
Marian I started amisulpride 5 days ago and I will let you know if it works
I am very scared of all pharmaceuticals, because I tend to respond badly to them. But low dose amisulpride is something that does interest me. Also because avolition disables me quite a bit, practically and socially and in my care for my kid.
I really hope it works for you, and am interested to hear if it does.
Welcome to the forum! Glad you found us
I don’t take that, but I’m interested in trying it.
A few tips on things that confuse newbies:
Cake day is the anniversary date of when you joined.
The 1515 or other numbers at the end of peoples posts are because there’s a 15 character minimum to post. So people put 15s after until they get to the minimum characters to post.

Thanks a lot for the info @ZmaGal .i was just wondering what was the 15s hahaha
Hi Lolita, there was another poster a while ago with a similar name, anyway i take amisulpride 200mg a day and it helps me with everything.
@Resilient1 but before the medication did you have avolition and alogia ? Did they disappear completely after amisulpride?
I was on a different med before called rispiredone and i was very blunted and it caused me to be slow with avolition. i was quiter as well bc my mind was wiped most of the time.
What i have are primary negative symptoms and not negative symptoms caused by medication. Lets hope it works . But maybe I have to try with a higher dose than 50mg
sounds like side effects.
Welcome to the forum
@GrayBear thank you
Yes I’m on 500mg amisulpride
i tried amisulpride 400mg/day it made me want to sleep all day and worsened my avolition and it had no effect on alogia
Amilsulpride isnt available in the US as a treatment i dont think. I looked into it for negatives but found it was only in europe
