What happens to dopamine levels as you increase serotonin?    Assume you are using L-tryptophan or 5-HTP to generate the extra serotonin.


Is it the case that added serotonin acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter without affecting dopamine levels, or is there a pathway by which the increased serotonin levels might actually reduce dopamine levels?
