We all do armchair quarterbacking, trying to make some sense and order out of what meds do, how a certain chemistry relates to a certain symptom, etc. Honestly, it just aint that simple. To view low libido as a dopamine/mesolimbic issue I think is overly simplified and could even be totally off base. Sex involves multiple complicated pathways of various biochemistries all acting in concert. I mean, sure, the dopamine/mesolimbic thing sounds logical and makes sense. But that doesn't matter because we still can't predict anything from it and it is still just an idea not a fact we can duplicate or prove.

The most important thing is to try stuff. There are at least half a dozen world class herbs with libido as their target. Singularly or in combination, they should be explored and experimented with. If you wanted to rule in or rule out the theory of dopamine/mesolimbic, fine, sounds good, choose a med that can do that and do it. See what happens. Might work out and might not. Ritalin might be a quick easy test. A single day on low dose amisulpride would also be a really close direct test of that theory. Which I can already tell you the results of....yes, it does that mechanism and yes libido goes way up....for a day that is until its prolactin lowering mechanism starts to overshadow. As an as-needed approach, maybe once a week sort of thing, amisulpride could do that. I think the herbs are the best place to be looking though.

In States where it is legal for medical use, probably the single best on-demand libido booster I am aware of is a cannabis.
