What has your experience been with Sarcosine for symptoms?

Hello everyone. My brother is a victim of schizoaffective disorder and has extreme anhedonia as some will call it- that includes, but is not limited to a lack of pleasure, interest and enjoyment in normal activities. He also has poor memory and concentration. He believes strongly that this was caused by a drug named safforas that he took a while back. He’s tried antipsychotics to treat these side effects, but got no luck. He heard that sarcosine helps people with some of these symptoms, but before he tries it he wants to know if anyone has had any luck treating the side effects mentioned above. Specifically if they are someone who believes the side effects were caused by the anti-psychotics and not the illness. He currently takes zyprexa & vistaril.

I’d like to encourage you to join our forum for Family and Caregivers that can be found at:

While this is a peer support forum for people with schizophrenia and other closely related psychotic disorders, the Family forum is specifically for people like yourself, who have a loved one they are concerned about.

Also, please let your loved one know about this forum as they may find it helpful.

Best of luck,
