Does dopamite(dopamine supplement) increase more dopamine level or prescribed medicine like biperiden(dopamine reuptake inhibitor) does?

I'm curious: Why do you believe you need to take medication that claims to affect dopamine, especially OTC remedy which will NOT cross the brain-blood barrier? If you are depressed, you could see a psychiatrist, and if you have Parkinson's disease, a neurologist.
