What releases dopamine?

Dopamine can be supplied as a medication that acts on the sympathetic nervous system, producing effects such as increased heart rate and blood pressure. However, because dopamine cannot cross the blood-brain barrier, dopamine given as a drug does not directly affect the central nervous system. To increase the amount of dopamine in the brains of patients with diseases such as Parkinson's disease and dopa-responsive dystonia, L-DOPA (levodopa), which is the precursor of dopamine, can be given because it can cross the blood-brain barrier.

Does SSRI therapy significantly lower dopamine?

SSRIs works by reuptake inhibition- leaving more serotonin in the synapse. It has been raised that this also implies lowering dopamine.Many patients report typical "dopamine" side-effects with longterm chronic use of SSRIs. Apathy, anhedonia, hyperprolactinemia, extrapyramidal symptoms, sexual and cognitive dysfunction, galactorrhea, mammary hypertrophy, and gynecomastia.Studies do show that SSRI effect dopamine. SSRI "hijack" dopamine signaling as well launching serotonin signals causing the brain to produce less dopamine.The second thing to consider is that because SSRIs work to increase synaptic levels of serotonin, this means that where 5-HT terminals interact with dopamine terminals, directly or indirectly via GABAergic interneurons, as they do the frontal cortex for example, SSRIs have an indirect effect on dopaminergic transmission, where they are thought to increase dopamine release.The third and final point to remember is that dopamine terminals wont just be receiving 5-HT or GABA input - they will be under the influence of other neurotransmitter systems, from lots of different areas of the brain - which makes their firing very tightly buffered against changes in serotonin caused by SSRIs. This is why there is a lot of conflicting evidence on how dopaminergic transmission may be altered via manipulations to the serotonergic system.Pharmacology isn't without its irony.
