We prove well-posedness results for stochastic nonlinear Schrödinger equations with linear multiplicative Wiener noise, including the nonconservative case. Our approach is different from the standard literature on stochastic nonlinear Schrödinger equations. By a rescaling transformation we reduce the stochastic equation to a random nonlinear Schrödinger equation with lower-order terms and treat the resulting equation by a fixed point argument based on generalizations of Strichartz estimates proved by Marzuola et al. (J Funct Anal 255(6):1479–1553, 2008). This approach makes it possible to improve earlier well-posedness results obtained in the conservative case by a direct approach to the stochastic Schrödinger equation. In contrast to the latter, we obtain well-posedness in the full range \([1, 1 + 4/d)\) of admissible exponents in the nonlinear part (where \(d\) is the dimension of the underlying Euclidean space), i.e., in exactly the same range as in the deterministic case.
