Antidepressant good for low dopamine?

Hello,

Doing some research I came across the following:

"Depression drugs like bupropion and MAO inhibitors--- a category of drugs that isn't used very much anymore--- act within the brain to reduce the destruction and recycling of dopamine. This strategy gives each dopamine molecule a longer lifespan and increases dopamine-derived nerve transmission. However, according to "Food And Nutrients In Disease Management," there is some concern that by preventing the natural recycling of dopamine without providing building blocks like tyrosine or levodopa, the long-term effect will be a dopamine depletion."

I suggest you discuss this with a Psychiatrist, in the meantime for you to be informed here is a list of MAO inhibitors:
