Caffeine affects the release of dopamine. It also influences the dopamine system at points after the production of dopamine. Drugs like heroin increase the levels of dopamine. DOPAMINE
Caffeine releases serotonin in the brain. Long term overuse can lead to a desensitizing effect. Heroin is a depressant and lowers the serotonin. It has also been tied to migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, and fibromyalgia. SEROTONIN
