My psychiatrist has diagnosed me with both depression (low dopamine) and schizophrenia (high dopamine) and has me on dopamine antagonist medications (atypical neuroleptics). Once in a while, I ask for an anti-depressant to see if it will improve my mood. I have read that these are dopamine agonists -- reuptake inhibitors. They increase dopamine levels. Are the two medications counteracting each other? My psychiatrist told me it has to do with regions of the brain that are affected; dopamine levels are relevant in one node of the brain for depression and another for schizophrenia. If so, should I just take the dopamine antagonists, or the dopamine agonists?
