Dopamine is a neurotransmitter produced by the body and used by the brain as a chemical messenger.
Our body has various nerve cells that are also called neurons. And a type of these neurons known as dopaminergic neurons produces Dopamine in different parts of the brain.
One of such major disorders cursed by Dopamine is Parkinson’s disease. The nerve disorder stiffens the bodily movements, causes tremors, imbalance, loss of movement controls, etc. It’s the lack of dopamine levels that is responsible for causing Parkinson’s disease.
We know Parkinson’s disease as a brain disorder that is only expected to get worse over time.
Doctors also prescribe Dopamine supplements for improving the symptoms of conditions such as Parkinson's disease and for the treatment of Attention Deficit Disorders.
It is dosed along with Levodopa & Carbidopa for minimizing the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. These symptoms usually include tremors, loss of muscular control, stiffness of muscles, muscular spasms, etc.
