Why glycine should not be taken if you are on clozapine?

I am on clozapine 150 mg per day. This week I have started taking 25 mg glycine powder in the morning. Didn’t felt anything yet.
I have read on the internet that people taking clozapine shouldn’t try glycine supplement.
Is it the rule or can we still try it? And what is the scientific reason for not combining the two.

It’s not dangerous, but it’s also not effective.

You’re taking such a small dose of glycine it’s no wonder you don’t feel anything. I take 10000mg a night. Here is an article that says they gave schizophrenics 60000mg (60 grams) per day to achieve an effect.

I just read @Zannah article, perhaps it is useless on clozapine.

I use it as a sleep aid, I think it helps a little.

Sorry, it is 25 grams.
Thanks for your reply. I think i should stop taking it. Thinking of trying Pramipexole.
