Some tidbits:

"Supportive Nutritional Therapy for Catecholamine Depletion

Tyrosine supplementation may increase catecholamine levels
A single oral dose of tyrosine (100 or 150 mg/kg) has been shown to
cause significant increases in urinary levels of norepinephrine,
epinephrine and dopamine as well as 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycols
(MHPG), vanilmandelic acid (VMA) and homovanillic acid (HVA).9
Increases in urinary catecholamines and their metabolites can be
correlated with increased production and secretion of catecholamines
in the body.

Tyrosine may therefore accelerate catecholamine synthesis and release
from cells throughout the body and may thus constitute a useful agent
for treating central and/or peripheral disorders associated with
insufficient release of catecholamines.9

Mucuna Pruriens
This herb contains naturally occurring l-dopa, which is the direct
precursor to dopamine. Several studies have indicated the efficacy
and safety of Mucuna pruriens in the treatment and support of
Parksinson’s disease. 10, 11 It works by increasing brain levels of
dopamine to reduce the symptomatology of low dopamine levels found in
Parkinson’s patients.

Vitamin B6
Vitamin B6 is a co-factor for the activity of the dopa decarboxylase
enzyme. Dopa decarboxylase catalyses the conversion of l-dopa to

Vitamin C
Vitamin C concentrates in the adrenal glands, both the adrenal cortex
and the adrenal medulla (where catecholamines are released). It is a
required co-factor in the conversion of dopamine to norepinephrine
and therefore deficiency of this nutrient may be associated with
depleted catecholamine levels."

Did supplementing these help you?
