Natural Dopamine Agonist
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. ...Read more
Most newer ones: Most of the newer antidepressant medications affect specific neurotransmitters. Each does it slightly differently, accounting for the different response rates amongst them. The SSRI's primarily increase serotonin, the SNRI's both serotonin and norepinephrine, and buproprion mostly norepinephrine alone, and Brintellix affects many of them in different ways and in different places in the brain. ...Read more
No: Truly homeopathic "medications" are made by repeated dilutions, so that the ingredient is not really there anymore (just the "essence" of it remains). That means there is no active ingredient left to antagonize dopamine. However, that also implies that the homeopathic "medicine" should be pretty harmless, unless some other non-homeopathic ingredient (such as some other chemical) was added. ...Read more
Mostly: Wellbutrin (bupropion) interferes with reuptake of dopamine&norepinephrine(noradrenaline)in the central nervous system, thereby leaving these neurotransmitters to sit longer&stronger in the synapse between communicating brain cells, which enhances dopamine&adrenaline activity at the cellular level. That can treat depression, feed pleasure to help sex&bypass tobacco, improve adhd&cognition, lower weight, etc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Atomoxetine inhibits serotonin transporter, dopamine transporter and naroephinephrine. What does inhibit mean?
Strattera (atomoxetine): Inhibition is the opposite of stimulation, so the effectiveness is reduced. ...Read more
Antidepressants: Yes but they tend to be tricky. Dopamine agonist include stimulants and parkinsons medications. They can lead to dependence, tolerance and lose effectiveness fairly quickly. The brain likes to balance effects so rapid acting medications like drugs of abuse cause the body to resist the change. This is why antidepressants that take awhile to work have more enduring benefit. ...Read more
Yes and no: They are both catecholamines, a specific type of chemical class. In the body, there are different type of receptors in tissues which bind catechols with different effects. Dopamine and doubtamine have different affinities for different receptors and thus can have different effects. Kind of like different types of baking sugars...They are all sugars but are used for special purposes and functions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How do dopamine antagonist help opioid nausea if opioid nause is mediated through opioid receptors and not dopamine?
interrelated: All receptor systems are interrelated and interact with each other. Whatever induces nausea, the reaction is triggered by dopaminergic pathways in a part of the brain called the chemoreceptor trigger zone. Most anti-emetics work by antagonizing dopamine. The combination of opioids and antinausea medications is quite common, both for synergism and to reduce nausea. ...Read more
Does dopamite(dopamine supplement) increase more dopamine level or prescribed medicine like biperiden(dopamine reuptake inhibitor) does?
Opiat work at dopamine receptor, Why increase dopamine supplement by Levodopa can't make me high?

No: At this time, there is no evidence to suggest this. As one may imagine, few if any studies have been performed in humans to look for this. ...Read more
Not safe: GABA antagonists are not routinely prescribed for GABA A receptor upregulation. The main one flumazenil (clonazepam) is used for overdoses from benzodiazepines in an ER setting. It may cause withdrawal seizures. Your best bet is to detox and enter a drug tx program for alcohol or sedative-hypnotic dependence issues. ...Read more
Off-label options: 1st, there are no over-the-counter dietary supplements that can/will increase testosterone production, no matter what miracles they promise. Don't buy into their ads as manufacturers are not required to prove safety or effectiveness prior to marketing. 2nd, (way) off-label use of hcg, Clomiphene & tamoxifen etc have been studied as a means to increase t production in men while retaining fertility. ...Read more
