Dostinex is a medicine specifically designed for the management of disorders characterized by increased levels of prolactin. This is often observed in connection with a lack of menstrual periods, undesirable chronic production of breast milk and inability to conceive a child.
The medicine is also indicated in cases where there is a need to suppress lactation due to medical reasons (for instance, in treatments of pituitary adenomas).
Dostinex works as an agonist of active dopamine receptors. The substance prevents the pituitary gland from secreting prolactin thus allowing the patient to stabilize their hormonal levels.
