Indications

Parlodel (generically known as bromocriptine) is a prescription drug indicated to treat a variety of conditions caused by hormone imbalances, including Parkinson's disease, hyperprolactinemia (elevated levels of prolactin hormone), and acromegaly (a disorder in which there is too much growth hormone in the body).

Bromocriptine belongs to a group of medicines known as the ergot alkaloids. Parlodel works by binding to and activating dopamine receptors in the brain, which can help to regulate hormone levels and improve symptoms.

Uses and Dosage

Parlodel comes as a tablet to take by mouth with food as directed by your doctor, usually 1 or 2 times daily. The dosage will depend on your medical condition and response to treatment, including growth hormone levels if treating acromegaly. Your doctor may start you on a low dose to reduce your risk of side effects and gradually increase it. Take the medication at the same time(s) each day to help remember.

Do not stop taking the medication without consulting your doctor, as abruptly stopping it can worsen some conditions and cause withdrawal symptoms like anxiety, depression, confusion, fever, or muscle stiffness. Your doctor may gradually lower your dose to help prevent withdrawal, especially if you have been using bromocriptine for a long time or in high doses. If you experience withdrawal symptoms, tell your doctor or pharmacist immediately.
