Thread: Prolactin Gyno

Quick question, I've been reading that bromo, B-6, or Vitex(chaste berry) are some good counter measures to take against this. Now my question is. Would Vitex/Chaste tree(chaste tree fruit powder) be as good as vitex(chaste berry)?

Never heard of the chaste berry method. Bromo or B-6 only. Bump for info.Originally Posted by JIMMYJAMES

Cabergoline for prolactin isn't a bad choice

I had to look it up. Interesting med for treating prolatctin. Glad you mentioned it.
a dopamine receptor agonist
Cabergoline ( ca-BER-goe-leen) is used to treat different types of medical problems that occur when too much of the hormone prolactin is produced. It can be used to treat certain menstrual problems, fertility problems in men and women, and pituitary prolactinomas (tumors of the pituitary gland). It works by stopping the brain from making and releasing the prolactin hormone from the pituitary. Cabergoline use is usually stopped when prolactin levels are normal for 6 months. It may be given again if symptoms of too much prolactin occur again.Originally Posted by einstein1905

Comparative studies with bromocriptine
A randomised, double-blind study with open-label follow-up compared cabergoline to bromocriptine in women with hyperprolactinaemic amenorrhoea over 24 weeks (n = 459).9 The dosages of the drugs taken by the majority of women were 1mg weekly of cabergoline (range 0.5- 2mg), and 5mg daily of bromocriptine (range 2.5- 10mg). Cabergoline or bromocriptine treatment had previously been taken by 68% of women.
Normalisation of prolactin levels occurred in 83% treated with cabergoline vs 58% with bromocriptine (25% difference, 95% CI 17%- 33%, p<0.001).
