Modified on 2009/10/14 21:45 by admin
Parlodel, also known as Bromocriptine, blocks release of a hormone called prolactin from the pituitary gland. Prolactin affects the menstrual cycle and milk production.

Parlodel is used to treat certain menstrual problems or to stop milk production in some women or men who have abnormal milk leakage. Parlodel is also used to treat infertility in both men and women. Parlodel is also used to treat some people who have Parkinson's disease. The drug works by stimulating certain parts of the brain and nervous system that are involved in this disease. In addition, Parlodel is used to treat acromegaly (overproduction of growth hormone) and pituitary prolactinomas (tumors of the pituitary gland).
