Just keep in mind that chronic dysthymia or depression or anxiety is doing ongoing damage to receptors. When a drug works, that cascade of damage stops.

As for making more dopamine, that works anecdotally for some people, but honestly it is hard to find proof. I mean, tons and tons of people, many of us, have tried things like tyrosine or DLPA and other pro-dopamine supplements. I see maybe 8 failures for every 2 successes. Anecdotal and unscientific.

Just because someone has more dopamine doesn't mean that dopamine is going to do the right thing it is supposed to do. For example, if there is a bountiful store of dopamine, but it isn't firing, what good is it? Amisulpride at low dose kicks dopamine into action.
