Yes: The caffeine in coffee blocks Adenosine receptors, which when activated make you tired and sleepy. This blockade also affects all major neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, acetylcholine, serotonin -- and in high doses, norepinephrine too. Dopamine effects are not in the exact same regions of the brain that other addictive substances affect, though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Think yours are low?: This is about the nervous system. What makes you think your "levels" are low? Neurotransmitters don't HAVE "levels". They don't just float around or circulate in blood. They're made in the terminal boutons of neurons, released into the synaptic cleft, & immediately either recycled & replaced or taken back up. Neurochemistry isn't just a New Age fad. REAL knowledge is power. Go arm yourself. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
