Norepinephrine and Dopamine Litmus Tests

Posted by Prefect on December 28, 2016, at 21:21:51

I apologize for posting this here rather than the supplements section, but I've noticed far more traffic here and really need to tap into the immense knowledge of patrons on this site to make some timely decisions.

I'm currently considering switching from Luvox to maybe a SNRI as a core med, or other meds that increase activity of norepinephrine and dopamine. But switching a med is a big move (been on Luvox 20 yrs) and until I pick the next alternative (thinking maybe Effexor or Wellbutrin) I want to take a crack at some supplements that sort of do the same thing really quickly as a litmus test for my current thinking.

So far I've come up with Tyrosine. I have two questions:

1. Yesterday I was mentally foggy, took 500 mg of L-Tyrosine and nothing happened. Correct me if I'm wrong but this supplement isn't one that takes time (unlike fish oil or something) for an outcome, right? If the dosage was correct, should I not have felt something yesterday?

2. Are there other supplements you think are better options for increasing Norephinephrine and dopaminergic activity than Tyrosine?
