How can you figure out which neurotransmitter your body is low in?

In brief: Not possible.

That idea of low and high neurotransmitter levels as a cause of mental disorders is appealing but not precise.
Direct measures of brain neurotransmitter levels is impossible with existing technology and probably wouldn't help much in diagnosis & treatment if available.
