Yes


Yes, only dopaminergic neurons release dopamine, but there are several dopaminergic pathways in the brain. Dopaminergic neurons in midbrain are the main source of dopamine in the mammalian CNS. Losing these is associated with Parkinson's Disease. Dopamine neurons are involved with voluntary movement and other behavioral processes such as mood, reward, addiction, psychosis, and stress.

No


Exercise does not cause hormones and neurotransmitters to increase to a level that would be considered excessive. Regular exercise is a good thing for everyone and can help with the increased activity seen in ADHD. It can also help with focus and attention. Physical activity has a positive impact on cognitive functioning so put on your running shoes and get going.

Natural High


There are many ways once can try to increase brain dopamine levels. But what ever you do, do not do it with drugs. The high is short and "fun"; the fall is miserable and and long. Some supplements can help, but discuss with your doctor before flushing your dollars down the drain. If natural measures fail, there are effective prescription medications which can help with your dopamine concern.

Serontinergic


Receptors do down regulate when a medication is used, they up regulate when there is no seratonin. Down regulation of dopamine receptors does occur in cases of abuse with cocaine, high dose amphetamine , etc, not with common medications for mood. Also people may have different levels of receptors without Meds, thrill seekers needing more dopamine release to feel a charge,.

Stay active


Exercise is a great way to relieve stress. Your body releases endorphins during exercise, which can help you feel calm. If you exercise 30 - 60 minutes a day, your stress levels can improve. When stressed, take 5 slow, deep breaths with your eyes closed, then roll your shoulders forward 5 times, then back 5 times. This will slow your heart rate and release tension in your neck and shoulders

 Dopamine Tyrosine Body Nutrition

Most food sources


Dopamine by itself is not found in any food sources but there are two amino acids that are converted to dopamine in the body. Look for foods with phenylananine and tyrosine in them, though this is not very difficult to find. Most meats, dairy, and grains are high in both of these amino acids

See below


Generally speaking we don't measure dopamine levels. There are diseases where the cells that produce dopamine start dying (i.e. Parkinson disease). There are diseases where the treatment are anti-dopaminegic medicine (i.e. schizophrenia, hyperkinetic movement disorders such as Huntington disease). I'm not sure that there is any condition where we say the dopamine level is too high.
