Cabgolin, also known as Cabergoline, belongs to a group of dopamine receptor agonists. The medication is prescribed to patients suffering from hormone imbalance with the excess amount of prolactin in the blood. The drug works by decreasing a range of this hormone, appearing in the pituitary gland. Besides, Cabgolin can be recommended by your physician in cases not mentioned in the safety leaflet.
Follow the doctor’s prescription taking Cabgolin. Do not change the recommended dose and intake periodicity. Besides, administer the drug taking into account all the instructions mentioned on the prescription label. Your healthcare provider may require numerous tests primarily to the treatment course to make sure the medication will be beneficial in your case and not cause severe side effects. Additionally, the doctor can adjust a bigger or smaller dose in the course of the treatment to get the best results.
Cabgolin is commonly administered twice a week during 6 months. The medication should not be taken daily, unless it is recommended by the specialist. Test your blood regularly and measure prolactin level to be sure the drug produces a positive impact.
Once you have missed a required dose, take it when you remember, but skip if the next scheduled dose is soon to be taken. Never increase or double the dose as it may cause overdose with its negative outcomes.
