Unclear: Your question is not clear. Are you saying that you believe you have higher dopamine levels and are therefore depressed or are you asking if you should increase dopamine levels in order to treat depression? Either way, the brain is an ELECTRICAL organ in which electrical connections are made CHEMICALLY. Aggregate dopamine levels itself are not important so much as where in the brain it is.
