Do you need to take something else for norephinephrine? Or does this product raise the levels enough?
If not, What can I take to supplement it with?
Balance D is a great way to increase dopamine production and dopamine should be readily converted to norepinephrine (unless a person also has something like autism spectrum disorder). See reference (https://www.greatplainslaboratory.com/articles-1/2018/7/23/inhibition-of-dopamine-conversion-to-norepinephrine-by-clostridia-metabolites-appears-to-be-a-the-major-cause-of-autism-schizophrenia-and-other-neuropsychiatric-disorders).

Can balance d be taken with Sinemet?
The best answer would be to check with the following site and track down someone who is skilled at amino acid treatment for Parkinson's and Parkinsonian syndromes.
In some early stages, Balance D might be sufficient to control the progression and symptoms and might be able to help a person reduce dependence on the drug approaches (that often make things worse anyway).
Dr. Hinz is a well-published clinician and is probably the country's leading expert in managing PD.

Can this Balance D product be used to replace Sinemet which I take now for Parkinson's? I also take Rasagiline, an inhibiter. Do you have a natural product to replace this as well? Do I take both the pharma and naturals at the same time and ween off the pharmas? It's time to get off the meds now because they are making me worse! Help!
Dopamine overdose is a common concern with PD treatment. You would have to work with a doc that understands this and knows how to adjust med levels to get you in the right range.
That being said, Balance D is a very effective dopamine precursor and receptor support product. Many people can manage their PD with supplements like this.
We recommend reading Grain Brain by Perlmutter. That will point you in the right direction.
We also recommend neurotransmitter testing to get an idea of your body's neuro pools. Hope that helps.
If you can't find a doctor that can help adjust those medications properly, I can give some references of people that might be able to help.

I was recently tested and it turned up that my Vitamin D is BELOW the lowest number on the recommended chart. What can I do to get it up? If this supplement has no Vitamin D in it, how does it help 'Balance D'?
Your are right this product is not for vitamin D3 but for balancing dopamine. I would recommending taking the Thorne D2 10,000. It will bring up your D levels quite nicely. Here is the link:http://www.ovitaminpro.com/d10000.html

I had my levels checked a couple of years ago and my dopamine levels were very low. I took a series of supplements including Adrecor, Travecor and Balance D. I noticed a significant change in my quality of life. My energy level increased, depression and anxiety improved and I could focus better. I quit taking them when I became a caretaker for my mother and she died. I want to start taking amino acids again but we can't afford for to spend the kind of money we spent before. What do you recommend that I do?
I would start with the Adrecor and Travacor first. You can see how you feel after a few weeks. I usually recommendt 2 Adrecor before breakfast and 2 before lunch. Then 2 Travacor one hour before bed. There should be a shift within a couple of weeks.
