Yes, dopamine levels need to be boosted but you can't take dopamine as a straight supplement as it can't cross the barrier between the blood and the brain. You can take meds that boost dopamine, such as Pramipexole and Acupan. But Pramipexole especially isn't suitable for everyone.

Also, the autonomic arousal of Fibro from whatever reason may lead to the low dopamine, so treating the autonomic arousal, or something that is causing the autonomic arousal, may allow dopamine levels to become more normal. Hence using drugs like Pregabalin, Gabapentin, Clonazepam.

And treating the poor sleep helps with this too - hence using meds like amitriptyline.

medication problems

Postby trev » Sat Jan 10, 2009 6:11 pm

Hi Debbie. I have really only been diagnosed for a couple of years now bwcause my GP who has now left the practice, diagnosed me with ME when no one else would or could give me an answer. Overall, I have been ill for around 15 years or so. When I first took ill, I went semi paralised down my left side and only really got back the use couple of years ago. Now, I am always tired, always sore to varying degrees and suffer quite a lot with nausia. I also have the dreaded brain fog and tenderness around tendons and joints hurt. I sleep like cr%$ and cant understand why my poor wife is still sane and with me. :o
I have been also diagnosed as having CEREBRAL DISRYTHMIA, work that one out. Just made an appointment to see Doc on Monday to see if I can get review on my medication after joining this forum, I am a bit wiser. {thanks folks} :lol: Today, I am having a lot of neck and sholder pain and feeling a bit sick, otherwise I am great! :lol:
It makes such a difference to be able to talk on this site, It takes your mind off other things that get in the way.
