    there are many different dopamine receptor subtypes and dopamine receptors are located in many different areas of the brain where they serve specific localized functions. Your question is therefore just far too broad. And even if you were more specific i doubt i could answer your question.

    what is the end result you are looking for as far as tangible effects? you want to have more energy? libido?

    I am curious as to why the person wants to "upregulate dopamine". In other words, there has to be an end goal here. Do they want more energy? More libido? more growth hormone secretion?

    no one wants to upregulate a neurotransmitter simply so they can tell people they have upregulated a neurotransmitter.

    that can elevate dopamine levels in parts of the brain but it shouldn't upregulate the receptors

    just a technical point there

    Basically all I want to know is how can you get more dopamine going on in the brain to improve sex drive. What are some good things to use?

    wouldn't increasing dopamine receptors be the exact opposite thing you want to do?

    If I remember correctly from neurology, receptor upregulation for dopamine is seen in addicts, hence the drug addition. If you increase the receptors, then you'll need more neurotransmitters to have the same effect.

    maybe i'm wrong. i dont know.

    why dont you just say you want to increase your sex drive? or does it have to involve dopamine?

    personally, focusing on one neurotransmitter (and way oversimplifying its function) instead of the end result is a faulty strategy. trees....forest....etc
