For the record, I am not shilling for this brand/merchant, but this is the one I ordered and it seems to work:

u/infectedmethod · 3 pointsr/Nootropics

1 dose of this (2 pills). Shows 120mg active L-Dopa.

This one from Amazon:

Sorry for formatting, on mobile.

Be careful though, this amount is too much for me so I actually have to manually reduce my dosage by taking out some of the content of the caps and taking about 1/2 the stuff. It has helped me quite a bit in terms of giving me that motivation and good feeling, but it isn't enough to keep the focus on a single task. I feel like that is more discipline related and not medicinal. The full capsule amount was making me too giddy.

Depression and diabetes are correlated but it's super complicated because your brain uses the most carbs out of any organ in your body. One thing that helped me was high epa fish oil. Look for some on amazon, it will level your mood out and do a billion other things to improve your health as well. Just fyi abilify will make your a1c go up and you feeling better after quitting it is because you're dopamine receptors had been sensitized, along with your addictive personality tells me you have major problems with dopamine regulation.

Thanks, will certainly look into it further. I am also interested in meditation and will be implementing it when this semester closes out and it makes sense to begin practicing. After doing research over the past 24 hours, I've come up with potential ideas for what I may begin using. If anyone can provide feedback or any notes on any of the following and dosage, it would be appreciated:

  • Bacopa Monnieri - I wasn't sure if it's important to take the extract or the whole herb in capsule form
  • L-Citrulline
  • NAC - I read a recent study suggesting NAC may break down the BBB, but the unhealthy rats used seem faulty
  • KSM-66
  • Chelated Magnesium - I read chelated is the best in this case


    Each of these listed are all just ideas, I'm not sure what would be necessary and what wouldn't, just what I've gathered from reading. I have also considered Zembrine and I'm not sure if a dopamine supplement would be necessary for any reason, but if so I've looked at L-Theanine and Dopa Mucuna.


    In researching all of this, I've also found multivitamins created specifically for anxiety. Something like this seems it could be promising. Am I better off creating my own stack and taking supplements individually, or would the multivitamin option be something worth considering? Does anyone have any experience?
u/postinondawebz · 1 pointr/Nootropics

Wellbutrin doesn'r raise dopamine so much as norepenephrine.

Do you remember a time in your life where these symptoms were better, or have you always been this way?

Do you masturbate too much?

Do you have drug addictions?

Do you have signs of inflammation?

Do you have stimulation in your life (consistent social exposure and support, goals, curiousity, novelty, adventure)?

Do you have unresolved emotional trauma that you haven't addressed, and are carrying around?

Do you have a good diet?

There are great nootropics options for dopamine deficiency but not worth going into if you aren't going to tackle the cause. For me I take one of these a day.

u/winlogon0 · 1 pointr/Nootropics

Really?? What about occasional L-dopa use, like this this?

u/fibroMight · 1 pointr/AskDrugNerds

You should look into Dopa Mucuna. It's not strong or anything but it does help.

I recently started taking Dopa Mucuna, and have noticed some positive differences in non-lucid dreaming.

This supplement provides a precursor to dopamine. It's possible that only people who need dopamine support will see results with this.

During the day, I have a higher sense of mental well-being, even people around me commented on this. My dreams have been easier to remember, and somewhat more colorful.

Now - about a week after I started taking this supplement I picked up an exercise bike-I was motivated to do this partially because of my improved mental state. During the first week of taking the supplement by it's self I noticed some positive changes in my dreaming and mood, after two weeks of exercising everyday, and taking this supplement, it's like I've leveled up. I'm remembering multiple dreams every night, consistently, and my mood and energy levels during the day are elevated. I'm not new to exercise, but the last 3 years I've been stuck in a sedentary rut. These last 3 years have been mostly crap for dreaming and my dream journal reflects this. Are the supplements helping with dreaming? Probably a little bit. Getting myself into a better physical/emotional/mental state has done wonders.
