Cabergoline was developed in the 1980’s to suppress prolactin in postpartum women who need t cease lactating for medical reasons. The drug is highly effective in stopping the lactation cycle, and has even been used in treating Parkinson’s disease.
For men, cabergoline is also useful for prolactin suppression, although for very different reasons. Prolactin can be found in men, but it offers no therapeutic value. Using testosterones with a moderate to high estrogenic amount can result in the increase of prolactin in males, which can go on to create a whole host of problems.
Some of these issues can include impotence and gynecomastia, a common affliction in males who regularly use anabolic steroids that aren’t kept in check with antiestrogens. If your prolactin levels are being raised from frequent steroid cycles high in estrogen, Cabgolin can definitely take your levels back down to where they need to be in a short amount of time.
