Yes: Yes, it is perfectly safe to take n-acetyl-l-tyrosine and l-dopa together. Adequate sleep, exercise and a healthy diet can also increase Dopamine production. See http://www.Wikihow.Com/increase-dopamine and http://www.Peaktestosterone.Com/natural_dopamine_increasers.Aspx for more info.

Please repost: Dopamine (DA) is produced by certain brain neurons in response to excitation by other neurons. DA metabolism is fantastically complicated & highly regulated. It doesn’t just “increase” in an unregulated way. Please repost & explain why you think your DA production NEEDS boosting; what tests or measurement techniques have been used to determine this; & what you expect to achieve by “boosting” DA.
