    This is really a question for the health professionals you have contact with. Whether it's safe for you or not is not something we can tell you

    Speak to your GP...Besides, you need a prescription for it so either-way you'll need to go to a GP.

    Ask your psych about it, if they think it’s the best course of treatment for you then they will prescribe it.

    Just explain to your psychiatrist why you think you need it. Apparently it can help quite a lot with negative symptoms. Your psychiatrist will weigh up the pros and cons.

    I was prescribed intuniv (which didn't help me) and adderall (which I never got because of reasons) so it's definitely possible that your psychiatrist may prescribe you something like that. Just ask.
