Sarcosine Reduces Symptoms in Schizophrenia

I first started taking sarcosine at 2g/day and noticed improvement, particularly in flat affect, and to a lesser extent concentration and other negative symptoms. Later, I increased it to 4g/day and the flat affect improved quite a bit, and concentration and motivation and other negative symptoms appear to have improved to a lesser extent. I feel it is worth it!

I tried that, thought I’d get a real boost in concentration. Made me hyper and more easily distracted. Didn’t work.

Yep same thing happened to me.

I found 2 grams mixed in water really well works best. I take that in the morning before work.

A good writeup in the British Journal of Psychiatry on how sarcosine may be able to help with some symptoms of schizophrenia.

I do see it “inline” (the font size is too small at 46%). Unfortunately I don’t download PDFs unless I’m certain of the source and my anti-virus says it’s safe.

Nice feature though.

I saw that issue too initially, but you can increase the size by clicking on the “plus” sign.
It was too small to read for me as well without clicking on the plus sign.

@anon16583342 do you see the “+” sign - so you can zoom in? That should work - let me know if not, and what web browser and version you are using. you may need to update your web browser to get all the features.

I think its wrong to withhold patients with anxiety disorder from benzos.

I believe my facility is trying to push Gabapentin as an alternative.

Sarcosine doesnt really have any effect on anxiety.

Yeah i took sarcosine for like 2 months, little hard to tell if it was helping or not, i recently bought something called agmatine, they say it helps with motivation.

I just bought a bag of sarcosine off Brainvitaminz.com and I have taken it for a couple of days. I feel a little less impulsive overall (less intense voices) but other things seem to be the same. It’s funny, it supposed to help negative symptoms but I feel like negative symptoms like “lack of motivation, not being proactive” has increased a little bit instead of decreasing. I’ll see how the next few weeks/months go.

I order Sarcosina, I let you know How IS working…
