Review Parlodel

Parlodel . What is the medication?


Parlodel is a peptide ergot alkaloid, dopamine analogue that inhibits the secretion of prolactin selectively, neutralizing lactotropic dopamine receptors on the lactotropic cells of hypophysis.

Treatment with Parlodel is highly effective to treat a form of amenorrhea, provoked by hyperprolactinemia. In overwhelming majority of patients (regardless of whether hyperprolactinemia is associated with pituitary adenoma or not) the drug causes a sharp drop in prolactin level in blood plasma, normal gonadotrophic hypophysary function and ovulatory menstrual cycles recovery.
