L-Dopa is an amino acid supplement that produces dopamine in the body after oral ingestion. It is a direct precursor to neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine and its supplementation can increase the levels of those transmitters in the body. L-Dopa crosses the protective blood–brain barrier, whereas dopamine itself cannot. Thus, L-Dopa is used to increase dopamine concentrations in the brain. Besides the central nervous system, L-Dopa is also converted into dopamine from within the peripheral nervous system. Excessive peripheral dopamine signaling causes many of the adverse side effects seen with sole L-Dopa administration. To bypass these effects, it is standard clinical practice to coadminister (with L-Dopa) a peripheral dopa decarboxylase inhibitor (DDCI) such as carbidopa or with a benserazide, to prevent the peripheral synthesis of dopamine from L-Dopa. Coadministration of pyridoxine without a DDCI accelerates the peripheral decarboxylation of L-Dopa to such an extent that it negates the effects of L-Dopa administration, a phenomenon that historically caused great confusion. In addition, L-Dopa, co-administered with a peripheral DDCI, has been investigated as a potential treatment for restless leg syndrome.
