I believe it increases serotonin AND dopamine. BarbaraCat, Chemist, or Sadpanda might know this, they 're pretty good with the chemistry stuff. If I remember (bad at remembering things here!) I'll ask my brother's friend as he iis in grad school for neurosciences with an emphasis on addiction and recovery.
