And what about other types of meds that boost dopamine, like bupropion, NADH or selegiline? How would you explain the perceived relief some people get from "low dopamine" SE's with those?

I've heard that bupropion may increase dopamine firing rates, so that would tie in with your theory.

Fascinated to hear your informed view Scott as I may be going back on an SSRI and am terrified of dopamine-related issues.
