A drug used to treat the early symptoms of Parkinson's. The drug works by increasing the amount of dopamine available for use by brain cells (a dopamine agonist). This is an older drug with many side effects that has been largely replaced with newer drugs.
ergot alkaloid and a potent dopamine receptor agonist that inhibits prolactin secretion and reduces plasma prolactin levels in patients with hyperprolactinemia, pituitary prolactinoma and Parkinson's disease.
Used to suppress prolactin secretion, therefore inhibits lactation and stimulates ovulation
A drug that mimics dopamine, which is produced by the hypothalamus to normally inhibit production of prolactin by the pituitary gland. Specific treatment for hyperprolactinemia: the tablets are given by mouth unless they cause side effects, in which case the same tablets (but not the capsules) can be used vaginally! Made by Sandoz as Parlodel.
An oral medication used to lower the level of the hormone prolactin.
(Parlodel) a dopamine agonist - a drug.
An oral dopamine agonist drug sometimes used to treat Parkinson's.
An example of a dopamine agonist.
A drug of a type called dopamine agonists, which can be used to reduce prolactin production in people with prolactinomas. Its brand name is Parlodel and it is produced by Novartis
a drug which acts on hormone-producing tumors to suppress its hormone-producing function.
One of the class of drugs known as dopamine agonists which are used to treat PD when levodopa alone is ineffective
(Parlodel) A dopamine agonist and antiParkinson drug.
An oral medication used to lower prolactin levels.
Tablets used to reduce prolactin production and reduce tumor when present.
The generic name of a dopamine agonist drug that can alleviate Parkinson's symptoms. The most common brand name is Parlodel.
An oral medication used to reduce prolactin levels and reduce the size of a pituitary tumor when present. This medication often causes dizziness and upset stomach and must be started with a small dose which is gradually increased as needed. This medication is equally effective when the tablet is placed into the vagina.
Bromocriptine (brand names include Parlodel), an ergoline derivative, is a dopamine agonist that is used in the treatment of pituitary tumors and Parkinson's disease. One of dopamine's effects on the pituitary is as an antagonist of prolactin production by lactotrophs.
