How does Cabergoline exert its effect?
Cabergoline is an ergot derivative that affects dopamine receptors, characterized by a strong and prolonged prolactin level diminishing action. The agent directly stimulates the certain dopamine receptors on the surface of lactotrophic cells of the pituitary gland, thereby inhibiting the secretion of prolactin.
The long duration of the preparation action lowering is associated with its long-duration storage in the target organ.
Based on the data on the placebo-controlled studies, the pills render a dose-dependent effect and a lowering of prolactin level with subsequent stabilization of the level within one month of the therapy. According to an 8-week double-blind comparison study, the level of prolactin in the blood normalized in 77% of women who used the medication. The menstruations restored in 77% of women and in 73% galactorrhea (pathological spontaneous outflow of milk from the mammary glands while not breastfeeding) was eliminated.
When you buy Cabergoline, you can take it without regard to meals as its effectiveness is not influenced by the food. The max level of the preparation in the blood plasma is achieved within two-three hours after the dose intake.
The major part of the taken dose is exposed to the effect of first passage through the liver. The medication and its metabolites are well dispensed in the tissues.
How should Cabergoline be utilized?

The dosage regimen for the suppressing of lactation is one day 1 milligram or two 0.5 mg pills.
If a woman is already lactating, the advised regimen is 0.25 mg every twelve hours for two days (the total dose taken for the course is one milligram). For women who had been already breastfeeding this regimen is preferable as it is more gentle and is rarely accompanied by any side effects especially the symptoms of arterial hypotension.
The therapy of hyperprolactinemia (abnormally high levels of prolactin) is made with the starting dosage of a half of a milligram once a week or a quarter of a milligram twice a week (for instance, on Tuesday and Friday). The elevation of the weekly dose must be made little by little and not more than by a half of a milligram a week every month till the achievement of the optimal therapeutic effect. Usually, the optimal dosage is one milligram a week or in a range of from a quarter to two milligrams a week. The maximum dosage for people with hyperprolactinemia known to date is 4.5 mg a week.
The max dosage of Dostinex a day must not be higher than three milligrams.
The weekly dose of the medication can be taken either in one day or split into two or more intakes a day based on the patient’s drug tolerance.
If the appointed dosage is higher than one milligram a week, it is advised to split it into several intakes as the tolerance of the intake of dosages higher than one milligram was not sufficiently assessed.
Once the optimal therapeutic dose is selected, it is recommended to regularly (monthly) perform the determination of prolactin levels, since normalization of these levels is usually observed within two to four weeks.
Usually, in the withdrawal of Dostinex, the relapse of hyperprolactinemia can happen. However, in some patients, the suppressed prolactin production can persist for several months.
