Hi,

I didn't read the whole thread yet, so forgive me if I am off-base or missed something. But this dopamine thing-caught my eye quick- my doctor for awhile suspected dopamine issues for me due to reasons ranging from sleep problems involving movement, motivational issues, and self-reported cognitive fuzziness (though that part has improved with use of Emsam with small amount of ritalin-and trying to do puzzles and reading more again.) Last week I got results back from blood test indicating low iron, almost anemia. He said that low iron can prevent the body from producing or even utilizing dopamine effectively, and put me on iron pills.
Bummer is, the iron pills (ferrous sulphate) seem to make me really nauseous. I have always been a big eater of red meat, take my vitamins, etc- but I guess none of that was enough somehow. I hope they help!!! Thank goodness they are supposed to only be temporary until I rebuild my stores.

What injections are you being offered? Just curious. Maybe the answer is in the thread, I'm gonna look.

Best wishes,

laima
