Hi IsoM,

Just wondering, if dopamine depletion causes with Parkinson's Disease and if lowering dopamine levels also blunts emotion, effects motivation etc then why is it that people with Parkinsons Disease don't necessarily suffer from depression or apathy.

I was reading a book by Michael J Fox and he seems a motivated, positive kind of person.

Also, why is it that when I take an antipsychotic like Zyprexa, which supposedly lowers dopamine levels, do I feel more motivated and alive? Could it be that when I initially take it it increases my dopamine levels in some way?


I know that nothing really is as simple as the above but I was wondering if you had any ideas on this?

Denise
