Sarcosine Reduces Symptoms in Schizophrenia


#291

Thinking of buying sarcosine for my son to try. Lucius or others, have you had a reduction in negative symptoms while trying this out?


#292

hi. I got my sarcosine just at the beginning of this week. As for now I have only opened it. Stinks as hell. I’ll start to take it as soon as I deal with my sleeping problems, because I fear that it could make my insomnia worse. I’m planning to post my experiences with this substance when I’ll begin to take it.


#293

I’m trying sarcosine now. Hope it helps.


#294

Yes - some people say that sarcosine really increases their energy level and activity - but for some others it can impact their sleep, I hear. L-Theanine seems to help with sleep quality for some people.


#295

I’ll wait with l-theanine a bit. I guess I just have to get used to my new clock on/ clockoff time, I’m taking some additional rispolept to get to sleep and it’s probably the best solution for me right now. I’ve already tried melatonine but I felt really bad after it and still didn’t get any night sleep. Tough time now so I won’t take the risk to experiment.


#296

How about for clozapine users? is this ok to take?


#297

Its ok to take - but a study suggested there was no additional benefit with sarcosine for clozapine users - it seems that clozapine may already target the brain receptor that sarcosine does.


#298

Oh interesting… ty for the pro tip.

Unk,
The company Nutrisweet, who are aspartame sellers, got some PhD guy to set up a lab and paid him £1 million to prove that Stevia gives men prostate cancer. That is why Stevia was banned in UK and EU for over a decade and I had to import mine from the USA, with instructions to call it ‘nutritional supplements’ and not Stevia.

Lucius,
Your Sarcosine stinks?? Now I’m confused. The Sarcosine I have bought does not stink. In fact the very feint smell can hardly be smelled at all, and it is a nutty rice type of smell. Now I’m worried I’ve been conned. Has anyone else bought Sarcosine from Dr T & T Health, UK? I will be very pleased to know. Thanks.


#301

Hi everyone i got some Sarcosine today. I read some where it can cause potential prostate cancer. Can anyone cofirm this. Thanks


#302

My sarcosine stinks like some sort of chicken soub spice, like Maggie. It’s Brainvitaminz brand. Altough it was sent overseas, it was vacuum packed so I don’t think it could be contaminated in any way.


#303

Szadmin how much do u get paid for advertising sarcosine?


#304

Probably not enough!

I often wondered if they could get grants from MH charity’s or gov orgs, but I guess there is always a price to pay for selling your soul!


#305

Very happy to hear that


#306

Very happy to hear that atleast there is something that is helpful for negative syptoms and lack of motivation in schizophrenia illness. Pls can it be taking with Clozaril

I tried sarcosine last year and figured I’d give it another go. A week or 2 ago I opened my sarcosine from smart powders and found it gave me some mental stimulation. 3 or 4 days later I couldn’t control my thoughts… I was talking to myself in my mind non stop. It was really annoying and unpleasant, like it multiplied what schitzo symptoms I had left, which weren’t much since I was doing ok. So I stopped the sarcosine and my mind feels even better than it did before. Strange. Maybe it’s just the relief that I realized the problem. I immediately got better when I stopped the stuff. Waste of money and risky for your mental health if you ask me. I do not recommend it.

@SzAdmin. Someone on clozapine 500mg qd


#309
