People with macroprolactinomas, which results in prolactinemia, respond well to dopaminergic compounds because the tumor size is reduced, thereby restoring the function of the pituitary gland in its entirety - elevating LH/FSH, along with a testosterone-elevating local effect in the testicles from prolactin decrement. People with microprolactinomas (smaller tumor burden) do not respond as well to dopaminergic drugs in elevating testosterone, since there is less of a compressive effect on the ant. pituitary. Testosterone is generally not lower in this patient population. For people without compressive tumors but with prolactinemia (i.e. primary hypothyroidism), dopaminergic drugs have been shown to reduce prolactinemia without elevating LH/FSH/testosterone (it is rarely decreased anyhow).

But does mucuna(l-dopa) penetrate into the brain chemistry without carbidopa?
I would like to use mucuna for prolactin control but would not like to mess with my dopamine in any major way because I am very prone to depression,anxiety and also I get pretty easily addicted to dopamine raising agents(i.e. drugs)

This is a question I've also been looking to get a conclusive answer for, but from a natural angle i.e. using EGCG instead of carbidopa.
However from the information I can find there are vastly conflicting views put forward from individual companies and their reps. Obviously both can't be right so drawing my own conclusion based on how a medical patient is treated when being administered prolactin lowering drugs, I'm going to use an EGCG product along side mucuna(l-dopa). It will either help inside the brain, outside the brain or won't work full stop. Can't see it doing any harm other than that to my wallet

(1): "it is suggested that dopamine may inhibit the release of PRL from the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, and this stimulates the hypothalamus and forebrain to secrete GnRH, which in turn may activate the anterior pituitary gland to secrete FSH and LH, causing increased synthesis of T by Leydig cells of the testis in infertile subjects (28). Moreover, LH controls steroid production by binding with the receptors on the Leydig cells, thereby inducing the synthesis of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) from adenosine triphosphate, and increased levels of cAMP are largely responsible for the upregulation of steroidogenesis 15, 29, 30 and 31."
There is nothing in the above study to indicate that the patients had prolactinomas.

I see Dopadex recommended daily dose is 750mg of L-DOPA coming from 98% extract of Mucuna (while few other supplements recommend up to 500mg).
And how long it should be taken daily and then how long off period?

Is it OK taking it for these purpose at 6 caps daily of Endosurge Turbo and Erase Pro at 1 cap 2x or 3x/week for 8 weeks then 4 weeks off?
