Re: Noradrenaline/Dopamine JackSprat

Although it is not a pharmaceutical, I have recently been reading that Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC)(100 - 250 mg daily) affects dopamine. I think that another natural supplement may be Enada NADH (2.5 - 5 mg two - three times a week), which is said to increase motivation and concentration. I am considering ordering ALC and NADH, depending on the cost, and giving them both a try before going to battle with my pdoc for Provigil or something similar.
