Does anyone know if it is safe to use Sarcosine if someone is also taking an antidepressant? My son is on Invega Sustena (monthly injection). He has sz-aff disorder and has been compliant for 6 years w/o incident. He does experience anxiety and depression. He recently quit smoking (after almost 20 years!) and has been struggling with negative symptoms. He just started Sarcosine, 1 g per day, and his doc wants him to take an antidepressant. Is it safe to take both?
Yes, it’s save. Depressive and negative symptoms look quite a like but are two different things. Antidepressant for depression, Sarcosine for negative/cognitive symptoms, no problem.
I don’t think it’s unsafe. But sarcosine has been used by itself to treat depression.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarcosine I would try the sarcosine without the antidepressant first. All these doctors know how to do is prescribe a ton of medication.
