My own experience is that about 20% of those with schizophrenia ,bipolar or depression have pyroluria, and the results of the tests are not always what one expects.If somebody is not in a position to have the urine test for kryptopyrroles done then it is probably worth trying the following concoction for 1-3 months to see if it helps:
zinc 25mg daily for a month,increasing to 50mg daily then. Vit B6 200-400 mg daily plus 50mg daily of the P5P version if possible.Evening primrose oil 1g daily,manganese (this is not the same as magnesium)10mg twice daily,Vit C 1g daily and Vit E,preferably the mixed version, 400-800 Units daily. My own experience of this subject suggests that many start to get a response with a week or two and are much better in 3 months.Relapse occurs within a few weeks of stopping too.Nobody is cured but the quality of life can be much better.This list is taken in addition to and not as a replacement for your regular medication.Please discuss it with your pdoc before trying the nutrition.
