can anyone explain dopamine's role in depression?

Posted by floatingbridge on January 9, 2011, at 15:12:13

I know I've asked this before in some form or another.

My depression is worsening. I ran across information that stated emsam at 6mg affects dopamine levels more than other transmittors. (Maybe true?)

The last time I repeated what two docs said to me, I was (kinda) ridiculed. They said I was a dopamine responder. I didn't and don't understand enough to know why this could be considered absurd.

Can one be low in dopamine? Not processing it efficiently?

Is it related to endorphines?

Thanks for any clarification or for pointing me towards some reading.
