Dopamine is crucial but you need to increase it, not to substitute with exogenous substance. Direct dopamine agonist's are needed only when you cells can't synthesize their own dopamine (state like parkinsonism).i was just wondering i take paroxetine 40mg and wasnt sure if a dopamine agent would help increase dopamine and maybe work. i hear social anxiety can be caused by d2 receptor low binding.
Ignore the memantine hype, it's nothing like as effective as people say it is, and can lower the theshold for psychosis significantly. Even if it works for you, it's still only delaying tolerance.i have also read that dopamine agonists just wear off after a short while etc. and read on here that that can be prevented by taking memantine or something.
