Dopaminergics are a category of compounds which are known to have an impact upon dopamine levels and activity in the brain. Dopaminergics include dopamine-regulating enzymes like aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase, DOPA decarboxylase, and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOi). These compounds work by regulating the metabolism and synthesis of dopamine, and are often direct pre-cursors to dopamine.
Dopaminergics are used to treat severe dopamine deficiency disorders like Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder. They may also be effective treatments against symptoms of ADHD, anxiety, and depression. Dopaminergics are sometimes used as therapy for sexual dysfunction in both men and women. These compounds are known for providing natural mental and physical energy, while heightening alertness and, motivation and concentration.
