What do you suggest if my doctor gave me parlodel (bromocriptine) what is it. I think he said something about harmone.?

High prolactin?: Hi. If the Parlodel (bromocriptine) was given for a hormone, you probably have a high prolactin. Assuming you didn't just deliver a baby, that's usually due to a benign tumor in the pituitary gland that secretes prolactin. The high prolactin makes your periods stop and usually causes breast milk production. It is treated with bromocriptine (or the preferred drug, cabergoline). ...Read more

I'm curious as to what is the best medicine to cure allergy?

No cure yet, but...: Allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) is currently the only treatment that is disease modifiying, meaning it can change how the body responds to exposure to allergens.
