Perhaps: It is used in other countries to treat pd, it is not approved in the us to treat pd. It may interact with a persons pd medications and should only be taken under the care of a physician.

Wouldn't advise: Dostinex is a long-lasting Dopamine agonist, also called cabergoline. It is ergot-derived & therefore carries a risk of heart-valve fibrosis, like Permax or Parlodel (removed from the us market because of this issue). A much better, safe choice would be the currently used, non-ergot derived Dopamine agonists, such as Requip xl, neupro, (rotigotine) or Mirapex er. Hope that clarifies the issue for you! rmh :).

A 24-year-old member asked:

Are there other treatment options besides cabergoline for prolactinomas?

Many: Bromocriptine is another drug that is used to treating prolactinoma. Pergolide and quinagolide are two other drugs for prolactinoma but they are not/no longer available in the US. Transphenoidal surgery and radiation are other treatment options for prolactinoma but only if the drugs above do not effectively treat the disorder. Medication is the treatment of choice for prolactinoma.
