hi. ritalin, in particular, was somewhat popular I think in the 60s, for people stable on neuroleptics. The FDA and DEA started cracking down on uppers in the 70s and 80s, so...these days, not so much.

I did see a small abstract for a study for Vyvanse for negative symptoms in patients who had been stable for a long time. I think it went well, at carefully controlled doses. I doubt they'll pursue an FDA indication, given psychiatry's love/hate relationship with uppers.

Provigil or NuVigil seem to be somewhat popular in carefully selected people. Wellbutrin would probably be a more acceptable option to most doctors, but then you'd have to worry about the seizure risk and drug-drug interactions.

I seem to recall reading that Mirapex is used off label in some forms of Bipolar depression...maybe that'd be helpful in some forms of Schizophrenia, too? Schizophrenia is a somewhat vague diagnosis, even in modern times, so what works for one person with "Schizophrenia" might prove to be a nightmare for another person with "Schizophrenia."
