Abilify? i think i've heard of it a couple times on the posts, but never intrested in what it was. Isnt it like an antipschotic-antidepressant cocktailed. I dont know.

Anyways, you said someting about modulates dopamine, what does that mean?

I take Wellbutrin, its a really lousy dopamine reptake inhibitor, absoltuly nothing compared to cocaine, even methylphenidate. Anyone who is a Wellbutrin junkie is dumb, actually causes dysphoria, sometimes i have to pop a miltown level it out.

I brought it up to my doctor a while back, because i reseached it levels out dopamine levels, adn i assumed that it could level the dexedrine, high's and low's). But mainly i told him, its for the cocaine withdrawl, and depression.
But my prediction didnt turn out to my theory, even if i take high doses which is near the siezure threshold, like 400mg single dose, its still not very reinforcing, but its somewhat acceptable sometimes.

Now, ive already tried strattera, well i did the sample experiment with freebies, did a trial for about 6 weeks, no diffrence, to me it was a placebo. Provigil? yea ive heard of it, i thought it would be similar to caffine, ive read its not like the standard stimulant, but it effcts adrosine receptors, same as caffine, but it still doesnt effect dopamine.

What really are the actions of dopamine by the way? i think organizational actions, memory, motivation. But tell me if there is more.

But still Abilify catches my attention, i may talk to talk to my doctor next appontment about it.
