Dostinex Online Price, Dosage & Side Effects
What is Dostinex?
The active ingredient of Dostinex is cabergoline. Cabergoline is a dopamine receptor agonist used to treat hormonal imbalance caused by excessive amount of prolactin (hyperprolactinemia).
How does Dostinex work?
Dostinex blocks prolactin produced in the pituitary gland. As a result, the level of prolactin drops to normal rates. Dostinex affects only prolactin level; levels of other hormones remain the same.
The effect of this drug depends on the dosage.
When Dostinex is used?
- Prevention of physiological lactation after pregnancy
- Suppression of physiological postnatal lactation
- Treatment of disorders connected with excessive amount of prolactin
- Idiopathic hyperprolactinemia
Dostinex is used for treatment of both men and women. Dostinex for women helps to manage hyperprolactinemia that causes infertility, menstrual cycle disorders, galactorrhea. Men use this drug to treat heperprolactinemia that causes loss of potency and problems with libido.
Dostinex is taken by mouth. The dosage is prescribed individually.
For lactation suppression – 0.25 mg each 12 hours during 2 days.
For lactation prevention Dostinex is taken only once, after birth. The dosage is 1 mg.
Hyperprolactinemia therapy: the drug is usually taken 1 or 2 times a week at exact days (for example, each Monday if you take it once a week or each Monday and Friday if you take it twice a week). The initial dose should be lower than normal (0.25-0.5 mg). If necessary, the dosage can be increased, depending on therapeutic effect.
