I don’t know abut meds but the supplement sarcosine seems to be working for me for
Flat affect , and lack of motivation and avolition.

You should notice it after a couple weeks

None of antipsychotics work for negative symptoms

The only antipsychotics that work even a little bit for some people on negative symptoms are Abilify and Latuda. At least that has been my experience.

Typical antipsychotics (or first generation) didn’t really work for negative symptoms at all. Atypicals (or second generation) are supposed to work a fair bit for negative symptoms. Geodon that I was put on first didn’t seem to do crap for me. Abilify worked decently where I managed to sing in songs I wrote a couple of times with actual emotion in my voice and Latuda I have no idea at this time.
