Resveratrol Adjunct Therapy for Negative Symptoms in Patients With Stable Schizophrenia: A Double-Blind, Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial
Anyone try this here?
I think many of us would agree that the negative symptoms have caused us great suffering. The pills will come out of our sufferings, and we have paid a deep price for them. The specifics I leave up to the doctors. But if they want me to help in some way, I, for one, would be willing.
I tried this before when I was off meds and didn’t notice anything.
I’ve ordered some now so hopefully it won’t interact with abilify like 90% of the supplements I’ve tried.
It comes with this warning:
Caution: For adults only. Resveratrol may interact with many pharmaceutical medications (especially NSAIDs, including diclofenac). Consult physician if pregnant/nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition before using this product. This product may cause digestive upset in some sensitive individuals. If you experience any gastrointestinal discomfort after using this product, discontinue use. Keep out of reach of children.
Here’s some side effects from webmd.com
Bleeding disorders : Resveratrol might slow blood clotting and increase the risk of bleeding in people with bleeding disorders.
Hormone-sensitive condition such as breast cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, endometriosis, or uterine fibroids : Resveratrol might act like estrogen. If you have any condition that might be made worse by exposure to estrogen, don’t use resveratrol.
Surgery : Resveratrol might increase the risk of bleeding during and after surgery. Stop using resveratrol at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
Medications changed by the liver (Cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) substrates) interacts with RESVERATROL
Some medications are changed and broken down by the liver.
Resveratrol might decrease how quickly the liver breaks down some medications. Taking resveratrol along with some medications that are broken down by the liver can increase the effects and side effects of some medications. Before taking resveratrol, talk to your healthcare provider if you are taking any medications that are changed by the liver.
Some medications changed by the liver include lovastatin (Mevacor), ketoconazole (Nizoral), itraconazole (Sporanox), fexofenadine (Allegra), triazolam (Halcion), and many others.
