Bromocriptine Parlodel

Parlodel is a medication that slows or stops the production of the hormone prolactin in the brain's pituitary gland. It is very useful in treating women with abnormally high prolactin levels. Very high levels of prolactin may be due to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), hormonal imbalance, or a benign tumor in the pituitary gland called a pituitary adenoma. Unfortunately, high prolactin levels interfere with the body's normal production of LH and FSH and thus hinder the ovulation process. Parlodel is prescribed to lower the prolactin level and therefore allow ovulation to occur.

Additionally, Parlodel is also prescribed to treat a wide variety of other medical conditions that are not related to fertility or women's health at all. Examples include Parkinson's disease, which is a neurological condition, and acromegaly, which is a rare condition where the body produces too much growth hormone.
