Denise, remember you asked me this question a while back?

"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'm sorry but my life for the last couple of months has been unsettled & hectic. I haven't come across anything on this & can't add anything of value.

There's a few very educated people posting on this board, one an Associate Professor in Biology (name withheld to protect privacy), who may have more to offer. Why not repost your question with a subject line like "Parkinson's, Dopamine and Zyprexa Question" & see if any respond?
Sorry I haven't been able to help.
