Cabergoline in Hormone Treatment
Cabergoline* is prescribed by medical professionals to treat high levels of prolactin hormone in your body. High levels of prolactin in women can cause symptoms such as unwanted breast milk and missed periods and can cause difficulty becoming pregnant. High levels of prolactin in men can cause symptoms such as enlarged breasts and decreased sexual ability/desire and libido issues. Cabergoline is an ergot medication and works by blocking the release of prolactin from the pituitary gland.
It can be used as a ergot derivative and a potent dopamine-D2 receptor agonist. The chemical name for Cabergoline is 1-[(6-allylergolin-8ss-yl)-carbonyl]-1-[3-(dimethylamino) propyl]-3-ethylurea. The anterior pituitary controls the secretion prolactin. This is likely due to dopamine release by tuberoinfundibular neuron. Cabergoline, a long-acting dopamine agonist, has a high affinity to D2 receptors. In vitro studies have shown that cabergoline has a direct inhibitory action on prolactin secretion by the pituitary lactotrophs of rats. In reserpinized rats, serum prolactin levels were lower than with cabergoline. Studies on receptor binding have shown that it is not able to bind with dopamine D1 and a2-adrenergic receptors, 5-HT1 and 5-HT2-serotonergic receptors, and dopamine D1 and a2-adrenergic receptors.
