Looking to for ways to increase motivation/drive without the use of stimulants. Can't handle the wired feeling I get from adderall or provigil. Hell, I can't even handle the stimulation I get from a single cup of coffee these days.
Had a very strange reaction to ropinirole last week where .25mgs induced an almost euphoric state and extreme sense of well being. Given this extreme reaction I don't think I'll be pursing the route of DA agnoists and the potential for DAWS.
I have slightly elevated blood pressure (140/70). I also have an intolerance to alcohol. I used to drink like a fish in my college days but recently even small amounts increase my anxiety and restlessness.
Used excessive amounts of opiates throughout grad school so I'm looking for something nonaddictive.
Is it possible to increase dopamine levels in a nonaddictive, long term manner? If so, where would you start?
