Caffeine and Dopamine

I did something rare today and drank an energy drink an hour ago. It had 30mg of caffeinne per 100ml and the can was 250ml.

I was feeling tired until I drank it and then I felt really good and my social anxiety went way down. I read that caffeine is a strong dopamine protagonist, even my anti depressant medication Mirtazapine doesn't make me feel this good.

I need to get on a dopamine protagonist stat. Clearly it helps big time! Way more than serotonin and nonadrelaline.

energy drinks have taurine in them to support feelings of well being. I like drinking them for my depression and it helps better than my antidepressant norpramin.

Thanks for the responce, I didn't realise there was another drug in the drink. I'll google Taurine and see what it does.

It's a wacky, wacky world when the drugs in an energy drink can make you feel way better than the pharmaceutical drugs.

no ****..get on nardil asap, but pre prepared to wait six weeks plus for it to take its real effect. Prime comparison of what you say for me is, this stuff has just kicked in properly and I'm feeling ****ing awesome, though my sleep is totally ****ed now, but will tend to that major side effect today with the doc hopefully. Anyway, I no longer need to have my coffee as soon as I wake, because I already for that wellbeen feeling from dopamine an gaba, ie similar, but better buzz from word go. When I do hit my strong coffee, with my new nardil wellbeen, It's like a euphoric feeling. love it. lol

haha, as of right now, it's way, way down, though that's due to a drug called Colmid I take, which is a female fertility drug. It's also used "after steroid use", as when you take steroids aka "testosterone" the body shuts down it's natural production though a negative feedback system. This drug is necessary to jump start the natural testosterone production again. (works in about 3 week) vs with out 10 weeks the body would take to recover without. Muscle built with steroid assistance will tend to jump of your body very fast if you were to go ten weeks with out any testosterone production (testosterone regulates muscle mass). Not to mention the many other negative effects of low testosterone. (including depression an anxiety) Anyway, with the way it manipulates the male system, it temporally kills libido.

In terms of the nardreil effect, the stuff has only really just kicked in, wile Ive been on my testosterone recovery program. Though the 6 weeks prior I had no libido issues. Though now that I think about it, I was using a super-therapeutic dose of synthetic testosterone at that point, making me want to **** anything that walks (that was female of course)

I'll be 8 weeks before I run another dose of testosterone, to let my natural system recover properly. So I'll gauge my my natural libido wile on nardil in about 2 weeks time, once I come off Colmid an my system has recovered.

LOL at typing all that an not even been able to give you a proper answer.

I will note, I'm sure I could bone something right now if needed, just zero urge to play with myself or watch porn. I keep some Viagra for if I was to go out an pick up a ****, wile on recovery, though I'm sure it probably wouldn't be necessary. Plus I need to not be drinking and going out wile trying to recovery my system, and also trying to maintain my steroid muscle gains, without high testosterone levels.

Another note, before nadil kicked it, using testosterone was the closest thing to a effective treatment for my depression. (high testosterone increases dopamine levels) I should feel amazing on Testosterone an Naril at the same time when I start my next cycle.

love Nardil..

That's a low dose of caffeine. I like a low dose as well. 300 mg and above per day and I get way too jittery. I also hate it that they always put vitamin b3 in these drinks, that stuff causes flushing which we don't want!
