    Beyond, I don't understand. Doesn't Mucuna Pruriens increase dopamine? Is this the thing to do with COMT ++ and MAO -/+ mutations? In the past, I've tended to have high - high-normal dopamine (urine).

    Sorry pam, these kinds of things happen me a lot :oops: It was the other way around. You could try something for serotonin like Hypericum or something like Maca or Bacopa. There are lots of options in herbs or substances for motivation/focus, but the personal response tends to be very different. So different that some people get better on one thing and others will get a lot worse, so it is a matter of trying, but at least you know you should avoid dopamine precursors.
