What is Parlodel and its side effects?
Parlodel® (bromocriptine) is a drug that is prescribed to women to treat infertility. Infertility is the inability to conceive a baby within one year of trying. Parlodel® can help women unable to menstruate or ovulate by helping to correct abnormal levels of prolactin in their bodies. Other uses of bromocriptine include treating acromegaly, Parkinson's disease and hypogonadism. The dosage prescribed is chosen by the reason of treatment. Make sure to take Parlodel® exactly as it is prescribed to you. It is best to take the drug with food. If you are still having trouble conceiving after taking bromocriptine, speak with your physician to determine the best treatment for you.
